The output of university presses remains centred on a stand-alone, print-driven book paradigm, despite technological developments that can enable ‘interaction, communication, and interconnection.’ In order to improve the distribution of books, several university presses have invested in the development of online content platforms, but the great majority of digital publishing output is limited to PDF, ePub, and HTML files. Inspired by increasing popularity of mobile technologies and devices, this article investigates opportunities for greater use of digital media in scholarly book publishing. It focuses on the feasibility of producing ebook applications and using social networking platforms as a way to make complex information accessible to wider audiences enabling improved research dissemination and increased engagement with individual works.
