JEP for 11/2010: Reimagining the University Press

The November 2010 issue of the Journal of Electronic Publishing 
(Volume 13, Issue 2) is now available at 
http://journalofelectronicpublishing.org. The issue is organized 
around the theme "Reimagining the University Press" and guest 
edited by Phil Pochoda, Director of the University of Michigan 
Press. "In the broadest sense, these essays can be read as 
attempts to discover how or even whether the presses will 
continue to play a valued leadership role in scholarly 
publishing, or if the most powerful publishing wave since 
Gutenberg will leave the presses stranded on an abandoned shore," 
Pochoda writes in the Editor's Note
