(Stanford, CA)–Scholars of digital humanities and computational social sciences will soon have an academic publisher offering a validated, peer-reviewed process for their interactive scholarly research projects. Stanford University Press, with grant funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will accelerate the integration of interactive scholarly works, usually revealed as Web sites, and new narratives enriched with digital objects and rich linking, into its publishing portfolio.
Stanford University Press will undertake a digital publishing process that mirrors the rigor and consideration of book publishing. “Adding interactive scholarly works to traditional publishing programs will lead to the next generation of university press publishing,” said Michael A. Keller, university librarian at Stanford and publisher of the Stanford University Press.
