Ohio University Press Humanities Open Book Program

The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 45 texts, including the Complete Works of Robert Browning, the Collected Letters of George Gissing, and the Series in Continental Thought.

Ohio University Press seeks funding for a one-year project to digitize and convert 45 out-of-print monographs, edited collections, and scholarly editions from two humanities disciplines, Victorian studies and philosophy, into open-access epub 3 files under a CC BY-NC-ND license and to make them discoverable and accessible on multiple platforms, including JSTOR, Project MUSE, Google Books, and OHIO Open Library. The Victorian studies titles include two series, The Complete Works of Robert Browning and The Collected Letters of George Gissing, and the philosophy titles include the major works of Lev Shestov and select volumes from our Series in Continental Thought. Over five years, using university funding and its own resources, the press has converted several hundred out-of-print titles to e-books or POD, but hundreds more remain inaccessible. This grant is a next step in the press’s plan to make dormant intellectual and cultural assets available to readers in a value-added format.
