AHA Event | The Ontology of Open Access: The Historians' Guide from Manuscript to Monograph to Reception and Impact
Tuesday, March 2 (11:00 AM ET-12:30 PM ET)

Chair: Elizabeth A. S. Demers, University of Michigan Press
Panel: Beth Bouloukos, Amherst College Press and Lever Press
Beth Fuget, University of Washington Press
Heather Staines, Independent Consultant

While scientists and social scientists have long embraced open access for long-form monograph publication, history and the humanities have been a little slower to take advantage of the power and possibilities of OA platforms. This panel, for historians, history professionals, and publishers, demystifies the editorial and acquisitions process for open access publishing; discusses the merits of different electronic platforms; looks at how to market OA scholarship to peers and students; and unpacks the big questions surrounding funding, reception, and impact. We will talk about traditional monographs as well as digital publications/enhanced ebooks. This panel will feature A/V in its presentation, as well as abundant opportunity for discussion with the audience.
