ASERL Friends:

I am pleased to announce that on October 25 we will host a webinar led by Lisa 
Macklin, Director, Scholarly Communications Office, Emory University Libraries, 
who will describe recent work performed by her and others to develop a Model 
Publishing Contract for long-form digital scholarship.  In June 2017, Emory 
University and the University of Michigan released the final version of a model 
publishing contract (https://www.modelpublishingcontract.org/) which is 
optimized for the publication of long-form digital scholarship, and can be 
adapted for open access monographs and fully digital projects. The Model 
Publishing Contract is freely available via a CC0 License to allow interested 
parties to adapt and adopt it for their own use, and was developed over a 
year-long process with the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. 

The Model Publishing Contract is a natural extension of previous Mellon 
Foundation-funded investigations at both Emory University and the University of 
Michigan, which explored the future of the monograph in the digital era and how 
institutional subventions might be used to fund book-length scholarship in the 
humanities, respectively. The Model Publishing Contract will be discussed 
within the context of a changing publication landscape, including examples of 
how the Model Publishing Contract may be adapted for different types of 
publications. This session will be of particular interest to those with a 
publishing or digital humanities unit in your library and those who advise 
authors on their book contracts.
