Present and active: Digital publishing in a post-print age

Mallan, Kerry M. & Patterson, Annette J. (2008) Present and active: Digital publishing in a post-print age. M/C: a journal of media and culture, 11(4).


Digital publishing is changing the way in which research, particularly in the humanities, is being undertaken and it offers a range of transformative possibilities and challenges to traditional disciplines and to the nature of the printed text. The technical manipulation of information and the construction of new content that can be customised, modified, disseminated, and accessed within a global, distributed network provide new opportunities for the humanities researcher. As a way of illustrating our argument, we discuss the Children's Literature Digital Resources (CLDR) project, with with we are involved, and explore a range of emerging new media and their impact on research in the humanities and education.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
