The Medium is the Message

“A book will always have its role… But the opportunity is to use a technology built for discourse to create an unprecedented good for scholarship.”

– Cameron Neylon (PLoS), in discussing monograph publication and the move to OA as part of his closing keynote at Open Access monographs in the humanities and social sciences conference
