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.
