The Academic Book of the Future research project is funded by the AHRC in collaboration with the British Library. The project explores questions around the purpose of an academic book, and how technology can help make academic books more accessible, as well as those around modes of production and reception. How will the book evolve, in print or electronic format, in Arts & Humanities disciplines?

While the project has confronted narratives that focus on the end of book through its research activities it is apparent that the term ‘book’ will remain valid even if the term becomes more fluid and open to interpretation.

This special issue of Convergence seeks to bring together innovative theoretical and methodological frameworks which explore the academic book of the future in Arts and Humanities disciplines. We invite contributions that engage with the academic book from across academia, bookselling, publishing, libraries and the wider publishing supply chain, addressing themes including (but not restricted to): production and publication; authorship; peer-review; reception; circulation; the Academy; preservation; access.
