[Google transl] New models of academic editing and publication. Defining long-distance paths
In recent years, new models of academic publishing houses have appeared in the context of scientific publishing. Most of these are young projects, which are driven by changes in the academic communication ecosystem, as a counterpart to the large publishing groups, which often operate with monopolistic models.
If some characteristic features of these new initiatives were to be found, they could be synthesized in:
• A high degree of specialisation of the initiatives, either in terms of the types of publications or in their dissemination channels.
• The focus is on the humanities and social sciences, particularly the publication of monographs.
• A clear commitment to open access publishing.
