Publishing Models

University Presses

University presses provide both traditional print publishing as well as emerging digital publishing options, and they are usually the main publishing outlets for humanities scholarship in the form of monographs.

The American Association of University Presses (AAUP) provides a list of resources for authors and faculty, including information on permissions and copyright, finding a publisher for your work, and manuscript tools.

In addition, the AAUP provides information on an open access (OA) monograph initiative known as TOME – Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem. TOME focuses on publishing OA digital editions of peer-reviewed monographs in the humanities and social sciences.
