Thanks to Chuck Jones for an alert concerning a paper by Denise Nitterhouse, “Digital Production Strategies for Scholarly Publishers.” By “scholarly publishers” Nitterhouse means traditional university presses, and her paper is about strategies for avoiding their extinction. From the conclusion:

University presses and their scholarly book publishing programs must evolve in response to the many pressures they face, or the costs of supporting them will be viewed as prohibitive in an age when the academy is questioning many of their traditional practices.
