THREAD: This might possibly count as weirdest #OpenAccess publishing news ever, at least in the landscape of OA books in HSS. Mark Edington, former director of @acpress & @Lever_Press initiative is now an Episcopal bishop living in Paris? episcopalnewsservice.org/2019/04/08/mar… @insidehighered
2/ @M_Publishing + @charleswatkinso: Has anyone been appointed to run @Lever_Press since Edington’s departure? And what is the progress toward releasing books? The website appears to be somewhat defunct? 60 titles were promised by 2021. insidehighered.com/news/2018/01/1… #BestPractices
3/ We ask because the @insidehighered article published today about the new OA history monograph initiative funded by @MellonFdn and steered by @uncpressblog mentions @Lever_Press as pushing the boundaries of what monographs can be in the present tense: insidehighered.com/news/2019/05/0…
4/ Does @Lever_Press currently have staff? Does it have titles forthcoming, built with @fulcrumpub as promised? cni.org/topics/publish… Punctum has followed Lever as a companionable initiative to our own, esp. since authors do not have to pay fees thanks to consortial funding.
5/ What is the status of funds that were raised on behalf of @Lever_Press? How much was raised, how much was spent, what was it spent on & most important: where are the books? What then, also, is the status of the Peer Review Transparency project initiated by Lever & @mitpress?
6/ Thanks in advance to any and all for helping to answer these questions! #OpenAccess #Monographs
