April 2008: Based on travels to all ten UC campuses and interviews with more than 100 faculty members and administrators, a new report Publishing Needs and Opportunities at the University of California "examines current publishing activities within the UC system" in and environment that is "under pressure from a number of forces, including the escalating cost of scientific journals, cutbacks in monograph publication on the part of many publishers, and opportunities for new kinds of publishing created by digital technologies."
The report recommends a number of steps for the University of California including the establishment of a university publishing program and a systemwide discussion of traditional notions of peer review as it relates to nontraditional publishing. The report was co-authored by Catherine Candee, Director of Publishing and Strategic Initiative, California Digital Library and Lynne Withey, Director of the University of California Press.
