This volume is a timely intervention that not only helps demystify the idea of a digital dissertation for students and their advisors, but will be broadly applicable to the work of librarians, administrators, and anyone else concerned with the future of graduate study in the humanities and digital scholarly publishing.

For those working in academic and professional publication, this book offers a glimpse at the struggles that are happening with the world of doctoral education as researchers begin to use the digital tools at hand to rethink research. While most of these issues are not new, the authors of these chapters note how they continue to be problematic. As much as these chapters focus on the problems as they pertain to the tenuring process, they also raise issues of publication and archiving that directly affect the academic publishers who have been struggling with these issues from a commercial standpoint. For any academic publisher who is rethinking the academic monograph to make it more current, this book offers insight from the practitioners and authors who are creating the next generation of interactive research.
