NUS Press is the scholarly publishing division of the National University of Singapore. Established in , the Press is heir to a tradition of academic publishing in Singapore that dates back some 60 years. We publish books and journals with a regional focus on Southeast Asia, and a disciplinary focus on the humanities and social sciences.   The most difficult problem seems to be securing a book contract in the first place, whether that has an open-access option or not: the survey .

Publishing in Partnership (PiP) is an affordable model of monographs publishing in partnership with renowned and reputable publishers. Due to importance of partnership as a key value of strategy followed by Cambridge International Academics, Our publishing division is always eager to work on proposals of scholarly publishing in partnership with well-known publishers through desired standards.   (Monographs will also be subject to the same restrictions at some undetermined point in the future.) Initiatives that are based on the imperatives of scientific research and communication, but that nonetheless expect compliance from humanities and social science journals, have long characterized open access policy.

  Indeed, to fully understand this difficulty is to realize that the entirety of the United Kingdom's current yearly book purchasing budget in libraries – across all types of book, not just academic research monographs – would barely stretch to cover the books published by just the four biggest academic presses in the UK.

The current scholarly publishing process is completely illogical from an access point of view. Many academics spend years researching and writing a scholarly book, but then find themselves either without a publishing outlet or with relatively few sales, and Cited by: Scholarly publishing plays a pivotal role in the dissemination of research.

While a great deal is known about the companies active in this sector, we need to know more about the employees of the firms that edit, produce, market, and distribute today's scholarly books and by: 3.

Monographs and the Humanities The submission to the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) demonstrated what was already widely known - that communication outputs vary considerably depending on the discipline.

The RAE showed that monographs are important in most of the Humanities and much less in many of the Social Sciences. Journal articles are overwhelmingly dominant in some of the. Harnad (b), one of the most prolific and consistent critics of the current system of scholarly publishing, has carefully rebutted the 30% savings figure frequently put forward by commercial publishers and makes a strong case for a savings of 70% or more when a journal is published electronically instead of in print.

The monograph is surely following in the steps of the academic journal in two respects: moving to a digital first e-book with optional print book; and embracing an open access-like or author services-like publishing model.

InWiley and Sheridan Press entered a strategic relationship to print journal issues on-demand in response to customer orders rather than in print batches just-in-case. To obtain the views of scholars on the so-called crisis of the scholarly monograph, a questionnaire was sent to 1, historians in doctoral/research universities asking about experiences in getting their books published and their opinions on a range of issues relating to publication.

According to the these results, the use of the scholarly monograph as a secondary source decreased from to but increased substantially from to The use of the scholarly monograph as a primary source has decreased, although this result may.

Luminos. Luminos, the UC Press’s open access monograph publishing program, adheres to the same high standards for selection, peer review, production, and marketing as the traditional publishing program. While print-on-demand does not solve all the fundamental issues facing the economics of monograph, it is playing an important role in facilitating the migration to digital by offering users the option to buy a printed and bound copy without crippling the academic book publisher who is engaged with an increasingly “digital first” publishing.

Much of the research on scholarly book publishing in HSS has focused on the crisis in monograph publishing, open access publishing, new business models, and the impact of the digital revolution on scholarly communication practices. remains one of the key works analysing changes in academic and educational publishing in the United Kingdom.

'Eve’s book gives a synoptic and multi-layered overview of many of the different factors at play in scholarly communication in the humanities, and offers valuable suggestions about how a transition to open access in the humanities might take better account of these factors, bringing much needed critical and constructive reflection to the contemporary pursuit of a long held dream.
