Electronic Publication and the Classics Profession

A panel presented at the 2004 American Philological Association Meeting,
sponsored by the Committee on Professional Matters

Organized by Barbara F. McManus and Ross Scaife

University presses and scholarly journals are facing severe economic pressures to curtail publications in the humanities at the same time as publication requirements for tenure and promotion spiral upward. As a profession, Classics has not yet formally addressed this issue despite its especially negative effect on smaller disciplines. Electronic publication offers one possible way to alleviate some of the worst effects of the crisis in scholarly publishing. This panel was designed to begin a dialogue among classicists on the potential and challenges of scholarly electronic publication.
