*Journal of Scholarly Publishing Volume 42, Number 1 / October 2010 is
now available at http://utpjournals.metapress.com/content/l25130850825/.*

This issue contains:

*The Market Demand for University Press Books
 http://utpjournals.metapress.com/content/cq3nr5271r466g6l/ *

Albert N. Greco, Robert M. Wharton

*Abstract*: This article analyzes important US university press net
publishers' revenue and net publishers' unit datasets and e-book
revenues for 2008–9. Data for net publishers' revenues, net publishers'
units, and digital e-book revenues for higher education textbooks,
professional and scholarly books, and consumer e-books were also
evaluated covering the years 2008–9.

Drawing on important economic data projections and the publicly
available competitive print and digital strategies crafted by
competitors in the consumer, higher education, and professional and
scholarly sectors, the authors develop net publishers' revenue and unit
projections for all of these book categories for 2010–15.

The university press data sets reveal unsettling declines in revenues
and units for 2008–2015. Addressing these declines, the authors conclude
with a brief series of recommendations, including the rapid adoption of
a digital ‘e-book’ business model in order to reposition the presses in
what is becoming a digital book marketplace.

*Blog to the Future?
 http://utpjournals.metapress.com/content/c59l03j5g6420780/ *

Angus Phillips

*Abstract*: A variety of current developments are creating questions
over present models of publishing and scholarly communication. Will new
journals continue to be launched? Will open-access developments such as
subject or institutional repositories reach a tipping point at which
libraries will start to cancel journal subscriptions? Is the journal
article too static a mechanism, by comparison to the ways in which
scholars are able to interact using blogs and wikis? Steadily emerging
is a new future for the journal as part of an overall network of
knowledge creation and scholarly communication. We are moving away from
a world in which a few producers generate content to transmit to a set
of users. Instead, the world of knowledge creation has a variety of
routes through which research can be disseminated and feedback
mechanisms facilitated by a range of collaborative tools.

*Where Will the Next Generation of Publishers Come From?
 http://utpjournals.metapress.com/content/vlj95265524g7071/ *

Alison Baverstock

*Abstract*: This essay considers how publishing (the concept and the
associated industry) is understood within society and how to spread
understanding of both the processes involved and the job opportunities
available. It examines traditional publishing recruitment practices and
the skills and competencies sought. It considers the role of publishing
within the academy, its arrival and reception, and how this is changing
as more sector-specific research is published. It looks at course
content on an international basis, how this matches the skills likely to
be needed by future publishers, and the role of the work placement.
Finally, it examines the process of widening and diversifying
recruitment, as well as the practical measures being taken to assist in
this process. The author makes a series of recommendations on how to
spread understanding of the publishing industry and present it as an
attractive option to the future workforce; promote a move to meet the
needs of a wider cross-section of society through encouraging more
people to read and gain the quantified benefits thereof; prioritize
excellence in information management and dissemination; and spread the
habit of buying published resources beyond traditional markets.

        Subject: cfp: issue of LLC from DH2010

Call for Papers

We call for the submission to a special issue of Literary and Linguistic 
Computing (LLC) containing papers from the 2010 Digital Humanities 
Conference at King’s College, London.  We should like to receive papers 
from anyone who presented at the meeting, including those who presented 
posters or demonstrations (see below). Long papers must report on 
completed work, including (at least preliminary) evaluation; while there 
is more room in short papers for reports on work at earlier stages, we 
emphasize that short papers should make scholarly points and not merely 
report on project work.  All submissions will be judged by at least two 
independent referees.  In the past such special issues have contained 
about ten papers of the seventy or eighty presentations.

Long papers may be up to 6000 words. in length, while short papers 
should not exceed 2000 words.  All submissions must be received by 
midnight (CET), Oct. 15, 2010.

Although submissions should be made via email to John Nerbonne 
(j.nerbonne at rug.nl) and therefore not to the journal directly, authors 
should otherwise prepare their manuscripts using the LLC guidelines, 
available at:
We emphasize that it is the author’s responsibility to see that the 
formal guidelines are met.
