Pioneering Initiatives in Publishing e-Scholarship
Scholarly publishers are increasingly incorporating Web sites into facets of the enterprise. Often, such sites primarily serve basic promotional and purchasing functions, but occasionally sites of both publishers and authors reflect other functionalities: search facilities, availability of published text, referral to instructional and research materials, hyperlinks to external sources, opportunity for reader-author exchange. This presentation provides a panoramic overview of Web sites recently prepared by publishers and/or authors that complement traditionally published scholarly monograph. This overview is intended to stimulate discussion of suitable Web functionalities that might be incorporated into monograph publications being prepared by scholars affiliated to the Virtual Knowledge Studio.
