Advancing Scholarly Expression

We digitally publish a wide selection of scholarship in collaboration with faculty members and graduate students. We also offer consultations on digital publishing solutions.

Our broad definition of digital publishing includes projects such as:

  • Launching an online regional research network
  • Sharing open-access sustainable models for scholarly journals
  • Building an innovative open access digital version of a scholarly monograph
  • Creating an open source tour app for laptops and mobile devices
  • Applying an open source annotation tool to scholarly editions
  • Designing exhibition maps with GIS
  • Deploying research data as a database with an interactive API
  • Visualizing networks of a literary formation
  • Preparing an online art exhibition catalog
  • Developing an interactive 3D visualization of historical cities

We support and consult on innovative digital approaches to traditional publishing genres such as books, journals, and scholarly editions, and work with scholars on new forms of digital publishing such as thematic research collections, expansive digital projects, and more.

Our training center, developed in partnership with the Laney Graduate School, provides students with project and process management experience as well as digital publishing skills that enhance their professional portfolios.

We also support Emory's Digital Publishing in the Humanities initiative, developed in partnership with Emory College of Arts and Sciences and the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry. We deploy best practices to ensure the accessibility of our digital publishing projects and offer consultations on accessibility considerations for those interested in digital publishing.
