ALPSP publishes Scholarly Book Publishing Practice Report

ALPSP has published the Scholarly Book Publishing Practice Report, the findings of a survey of academic book publishers' policies and practices, authored by Laura Cox and John Cox. Scholarly Book Publishing Practice is the first ALPSP survey undertaken to establish current practices in scholarly book and e-book publishing, to provide detailed analysis and statistics in this growing market. This report develops a picture of the market as it emerges and is a starting point for further research into how publishers are treating this rapidly developing arena. A survey was conducted of 400 publishers, both commercial and non-profit, consisting of ALPSP and other major association members. A response rate of over 60% was achieved including most major academic book publishers
