Monographs and Publishing Partnerships

CDRS provides support for traditional and new publishing models by working with Columbia-based authors and their editors at university presses and academic publishers to create enhanced digital publications of their print books. We also support the creation of digital ancillaries (such as wikis set up for translation of journal articles or blogs for discussion of published work) of pieces that already appear elsewhere online. If you’re interested in having us work with your press or publisher, please email Mark Newton, CDRS Interim Director, at
