In defense of the monograph
In defense of the monograph…

  • Scholarly Monograph in danger

  • So why fight for monograph publishing?

    • Presents a full, developed concept (Willinsky, 2009)

    • Putting a limit on monographs “restrict[s], in effect, what is studied” (Willinsky, 2009, para. 8)

  • What’s your role?

    • Future librarian: educate scholars on Open Monograph Press

    • Future Advocate: promote academic freedom

    • Future Author: Lead by example


Press with benefits
Press… with benefits

  • What is the Open Monograph Press?

    • An online workspace (like OJS)

    • Not necessarily Open Access, but has that potential

  • Benefits:

    • Reduced costs (Willinsky, 2009)

    • Freely available to the academic community (the software AND the information produced) (Willinsky 2009)

    • Supports print or electronic formats (Willinsky, 2009)

    • Low cost provides more opportunities for developing countries (Willinsky, 2009; Geiser, 2010)




Where libraries can help
Where libraries can help…

  • Willinsky (2008):

    • Libraries can act as partners in seeking grants

    • Support projects by ordering print and electronic versions in advance

    • Provide funding for OA (create an “endowed monograph series”)

    • Defray costs by hosting software; providing support

  • Shearer (2010):

    • Libraries are hosting OJS ~ considering OMP as possible next step


Caveats
Caveats

Not completely “free”

Promotion and tenure issues

More writing = poor writing?
