The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 200 classic humanities texts from Johns Hopkins University Press in the areas of American history, European history, literary criticism, and philosophy.  

The Johns Hopkins University Press, in collaboration with Project MUSE and the Johns Hopkins Sheridan libraries, seeks $200,000 in funding support for an eighteen-month effort to make up to two hundred outstanding works of Humanities scholarship accessible to the world. As a leading scholarly publisher with substantial intellectual property assets and digital distribution capabilities, we are well positioned to solve key problems in contemporary scholarly communications. We will use the funding to select important out-of-print Hopkins books, secure new licenses for them, republish, market, and distribute them in both Open Access and conventional print and ebook formats. Further, what we learn from this project will inform the design and business model for a new strategic publishing program, Hopkins Open Publishing.
