NMS Problem Statements

The purpose and future of the book

Increasing fragmentation; changing expectations of readers and academics towards monographs and esteem associated with monograph publishing; Costs associated with monograph as transfer of knowledge (ineffecient); Importance of the 'whole book' as opposed to the smaller parts - this is not well understood. Is monograph publication really about academic career progression?
