This package comprises a consortium of six academic-led, non-profit, born open access book publishers, including African Minds, Mattering Press, mediastudies.press, meson press, Open Book Publishers, and punctum books. Members of the consortium each retain their distinct identity as publishers, with different audiences, processes, business models. What they share, however, is a commitment to opening up scholarly research to diverse readerships, to resisting the marketization of academic knowledge production, and to working collaboratively rather than in competition.
ScholarLed is collectively developing powerful, practical ways for scholar-led open access presses to grow and flourish. They believe that smaller presses, working together, can significantly expand the capacity of open access book publishing— an approach ScholarLed calls ‘scaling small’.
ScholarLed publishes in a wide range of subjects in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
