La Columbia University Press annuncia che il progetto Gutenberg-e, realizzato in collaborazione con l’American Historical Association, è finalmente ad accesso libero e gratuito.
Più di 30 monografie di argomento storico, accuratamente selezionate e pubblicate in formato digitale, sono adesso disponibili online.
The Gutenberg-e prizewinning books represent the most distinguished and innovative scholarship delivered with creative and thoughtful use of digital technology. These books have undergone a rigorous academic review process by distinguished historians brought together by the American Historical Association and produced through a close collaboration between the authors and the electronic publishing staff at Columbia University Press.
The books represent a range of subjects:
- Africa, colonial Latin America, and South Asia
- Europe before 1800
- Military history and history of foreign relations
- History of North America before 1900
- Women’s History or History of Gender
While these digital monographs can be printed out and read in the traditional way, the electronic versions offer elements that cannot be conveyed in print: extensive documentation, hyperlinks to supplementary literature, images, music, video, and links to related web sites.
The Gutenberg-e prize is a collaborative effort between Columbia University Press and the American Historical Association, committed to exploring and promoting the electronic publication of scholarly writing. The Andrew W. Mellon foundation provides financial support for the project.
