Rice University Press highlighted for digital publishing of scholarly works, openly available on Connexions.

2010-03-16

The Houston Chronicle highlights Rice University Press for its digital publishing of scholarly works, all of which are openly available on Connexions. While other university presses are exploring digital options, the article says that "Rice goes further: Every book may be read online for free; none are printed until an order is placed, with the payment covering the cost of printing and delivering the book. There is no sales staff, nor warehouses to hold unsold books." The fully digital options allow the press to support unique projects that don't fit into standard marketing categories or are too expensive to produce using traditional processes. You can read about the press's latest projects in the full article, http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/6911202.html and you can see all the Rice University books available through Connexions by visiting their lens (http://cnx.org/lenses/Ricepress/affiliation).
