The Centre for the Comparative History of Print (Centre CHoP) present the following event as part of the Sadler Series, Cultures of the Book. Date: 12-10-2015
Simon Tanner, from King's College London (@SimonTanner), is a Co-Investigator on the AHRC/British Library project, 'The Academic Book of the Future' and his paper uses REF 2014 data to consider the state of the academic monograph. Looking both at the proportion of books submitted across the subject panels and then in depth at English and History, Tanner reflects on the role the monograph plays in the economy of scholarly communication and discusses the challenges the monograph will face in the future.
