Emory Publishing Resources

In addition to the Digital Publishing in the Humanities initiative, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Emory offers a variety of resources to assist in the development and publication of faculty’s digital scholarship.

Manuscript/Project Development

Emory Center for Digital Scholarship

ECDS offers consultations and seed funds for initiating open access digital projects. Additional funding may be necessary depending on the scope and complexity of the project. ECDS may also collaborate with a university press on book projects with a digital component. (See Sounding Spirit, a collaboration between the University of North Carolina Press and ECDS.)
