Stakeholders, Service, and the Future of University Press Publishing
Richard Brown

Stakeholder theory is a useful framework for understanding any industry, and I contend that university presses should focus their energies and attention on managing stakeholders and creating value for stakeholders. But while this focus is necessary, it is not sufficient. I propose that a commitment to service through entrepreneurship underlies university press relationships with primary stakeholders. University presses should therefore (a) strategically seek the widest possible access for value-added content through (b) creative delivery channels in order to help scholarly communities of practice advance their teaching, learning, and research. This will, I hope, (d) result in sufficient revenue to allow the organization to grow and flourish (e) in order to serve communities of practice and the academy and society more effectively.

The Wisconsin Magazine of History: A Case Study in Scholarly and Popular Approaches to American State Historical Society Publishing, 1917–2000
Ryan Schumacher

This article examines the history of American historical societies by focusing on the Wisconsin Magazine of History (WMH), published by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin (now known as the Wisconsin Historical Society). The first half of the paper relates the history of American state historical societies and their publishing ventures until the founding of the WMH in 1917. The first American state historical societies were private organizations of elite men, and their publications were meant to notify similar organizations of their proceedings. The advent of public state historical organizations opened membership to a much broader segment of society, but the professionalization of the study of history in the late nineteenth century brought about a more rigorous approach to the writing of history. Throughout the twentieth century, the SHSW and similar organizations have sought to balance an appeal to a broad public and a scholarly approach to history in publications such as the WMH. By examining issues of the WMH from 1917 to 2000, as the author has done in the second half of the paper, one can see how the publication, with audiences clearly in mind, tilted toward one side of this balance or the other in its design and content.

What Makes a Working Paper in Economics Publishable? A Tale from the Scientific Periphery
Aurora A. C. Teixeira

Research on scientific production and publications in the field of economics has positively boomed in the last few years. However, hardly any attention has been dedicated to the production of working papers and the consequences they may have within the institutions where they are produced. This paper provides a detailed analysis of the working papers produced and published from an institution that is relatively peripheral in terms of its production of research in economics. It mainly explores the probability of the working papers being published in peer-reviewed journals. Through the use of an extensive series of these working papers, produced between 1985 and the end of 2005, and through the estimation of a logistic regression model, it was concluded that the probability of international publication increases significantly when the working paper is recent and co-written with a researcher from a foreign institution. Such evidence suggests that for success in the ‘publish or perish’ world of scientific research, one has to be integrated into an international scientific network.

Remembering Morris Philipson

The Consequences of a Life in Scholarly Publishing*
Morris Philipson

There is a set of values and goals that endures in scholarly publishing through the vagaries of format innovations, changing market conditions, and shifting intellectual fashions: a commitment to the idea of ideas; dedication to the essentials of communication, even at the price of hiding our part as publishers in the equation; and an appreciation of the power of transforming thought. As scholarly publishers, we nurture the ‘play’ of thought that is the life of the mind, and, in turn, in becoming what we do, we are the better for it.
