Announcement: New Media Scholarship: An Invitation to Publish Scholarship
in the Humanities and Social Sciences Online in <www.cultureonline.org>.
The internet and the world wide web are rapidly changing many aspects of
scholarly communication and knowledge dissemination and transfer. These
changes include the publishing industry and the publishing of scholarly
texts. A website with the registered domain name cultureonline.org has been
launched for the webpublishing of books in the humanities and social
sciences and, as webbooks, of PhD dissertations and M.A. theses. All
webbooks published in <http://www.cultureonline.org> receive an
International ISBN number assigned to <http://www.cultureonline.org> by the
National Library of Canada <http://www.nlc-bnc.ca/> (series 1-894569-...).
The URL of the archival site at the National Library will be available for
electronic preservation and archiving following publication in
cultureonline.org. As well, cultureonline.org webbooks will be listed in
the yearly Books in Print, hard cover and online.
For detail about the process and the costs of webbooks in cultureonline.org
please go to <http://www.cultureonline.org>.
The webpresence of and online access to work in the humanities and social
sciences benefits the authors of the webbooks as name recognition and in
the context of communication and dissemination of ideas and knowledge. Most
importantly, New Media Scholarship has more readers and serves the
scholarly community world wide. cultureonline.org is looking forward to
receiving proposals to publish new work by interested scholars. Please pass
the word about this new service to scholars everywhere.
