eScholarship (U. of California) Releases First Open-Access Digital Book From New Series
eScholarship is delighted to announce the California Classical Studies (CCS) monographic series, a Mellon-funded, open access monograph publishing program focused on peer-reviewed, long-form scholarship in the field of Classics. CCS has just released its first book – The Traffic in Praise: Pindar and the Poetics of Social Economy.
The book is available as a Print on Demand paperback ($29.95) and may be read in page view at the open-access eScholarship repository operated by the California Digital Library.
In addition, thanks to the support of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and of endowed funds at the University of California, the short embargo period has been waived to celebrate the first title published in the series, and so the full PDF is also downloadable immediately at the repository. It is expected that the title will also be sold in ePub format in the near future.
