Digital Book Publishing Strategies in the AAUP Community
AAUP conducts a semi-regular survey of members on the subject of digital strategies in their book publishing programs. The survey gathers data on the extent to which various models, formats, channels, and digital workflows are being adopted by AAUP members, and takes the temperature of the membership on what issues are of greatest concern and topics on which professional development or information resources might be of greatest interest.
