Subject: Springer History of Computing Series--joining editorial leadership, seeking authors, upcoming volumes, and new competitive pricing (90)  From: Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra Subject: HIRMEOS Open Access books workshop at ELPUB, Marseille, 2 June 2019 (52) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-03-26 05:59:08+00:00 From: Jeffrey Yost Subject: Springer History of Computing Series--joining editorial leadership, seeking authors, upcoming volumes, and new competitive pricing Dear Colleagues, In January 2019 I signed on to be co-Series Editor of the Springer History of Computing Book Series, joining my distinguished colleague University of Amsterdam's Gerard Alberts.Â This series, edited in its early years by Martin Campbell-Kelly, now has published 15 volumes, and reflective of our specialty, it has accelerated its publishing in recent years. Over the past half decade we have published (or are publishing/have in press) monographs and edited volumes from William Aspray (multiple books), Thomas Haigh, Gerard Alberts, Ruth Oldenziel, Valerie Schafer, Benjamin Thierry, Aristotle Tympas, among others.Â And the series has published monographs/volumes on topics/themes such as the history of women in ICT, underrepresentation of gender and race in IT, the early digital, computation in the pre-computing era, Visa's payment system, the science of operations/programming, and the IT cultural history/demoscenes in Europe. We are working with a number of additional standout IT historians for books that will soon be under contract. I joined Gerard as co-Series Editor (after being on the board for many years) to help further boost our recent strong momentum in adding titles from North American authors, and while I will be recruiting particularly from this region, and Gerard from Europe, we will both be aggressively seeking important new works from all over the world.Â We seek book manuscripts on all types of history of IT and are especially interested in the social (gender, race, labor, etc.), cultural/intellectual, political, business/industrial, environmental, and technical history (and historiography) of computers, software, and networking, as well as in expanding our field's literature on new geographies (moving beyond our core on the U.S. and Europe, to publish on IT history in Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Africa). We continue to welcome quality edited volumes (in addition to our focus on single/co-authored books) and have two coming out this year. Ready for pre-orders and shipping in a few months, Thomas Haigh, ed. /The Early Digital/, has chapters from Ron Kline, Martin Campbell-Kelly, Paul Ceruzzi, Ksenia Tatarchenko, and other top scholars. And out later this year is William Aspray's edited volume from the Flatiron Lectures on Computing, Information, and Society, which has chapters by thought leaders Jennifer Light, JoAnne Yates, Ron Kline, and Greg Downey, among others. I am also thrilled to announce that in 2018 Springer revised its pricing model (and the series has re-priced back to 2016) to now price hardcover books in the $35 to $45 (32 to 42 Euro) range, highly competitive with other leading academic presses.Â Springer's reputation as a top academic publisher and strong global presence (with headquarters in Berlin and major offices in NYC, Paris, Milan, London, Tokyo, Delhi, etc. and a publication catalogue of over 300,000 books since 1842) helps to further the visibility and esteem of your scholarship. We strive for highly efficient peer-review and relatively short in press/wait times for publishing completed and accepted manuscripts. If you have a manuscript or an idea for one (most books in the series are in the 70,000 to 120,000 word range), I look forward to hearing from you. You can contact either myself or Gerard. Springer History of Computing Series URL https://www.springer.com/series/8442?detailsPage=titles [Separate from this series, but also of potential interest, Gerard and I also are co-editing SpringerBriefs in History of Computing, a series of short books.Â These are 20,000 to 50,000 word works for softcover books roughly 50 to 110 printed pages.Â If you have a ms or idea for one for a work that might otherwise be a multi-part article (which some journals discourage and often result in challenges with review), a longish historiographical essay, a shorter biography ms on a main historical actor from a longer study, or any other type of scholarly IT history work in this size range, I encourage you to think of submitting for consideration to SpringerBriefs in the History of Computing.Â We are capable of moving the process especially rapidly with SpringerBriefs, an expedited review process, and after review/editing out in several months. You can contact either of us regarding this series as well.] Best, Jeff Jeffrey R.

We would like to invite early-career researchers to discuss their experiences and needs concerning Open Access monographs and to submit an abstract (500 words) before 15 April 2019 on one of the following topics: . Topic 1: Not yet available services and tools which could increase the interest in publishing monographs in Open Access. . Topic 2: Experiences with funding Open Access publications. . Topic 3: Relevant aspects in choosing a publisher for the publication of a scholarly monograph. . Topic 4: Publication's reputation and certification of scientific quality. . Topic 5: Role of Open Access metrics and alternative metrics data concerning monographs in the development of an academic career. . Topic 6: Different strategies to increase the resonance of a monograph, expand the audience, create new communities and communicate with them. Invited speakers will receive a travel grant.
