The MLA has just released an updated statement on electronic publication. Revised by the Committee on Information Technology, the statement affirms that “[e]lectronically published journal articles, monographs, and long-form scholarship are viable and credible modes of scholarly publication” and that publishing electronically offers advantages to the author and the user, including ease of access and the possibility of incorporating multimedia features, source data, or dynamic presentation tools. Departments should judge electronically published works by the same criteria as print publications in make hiring decisions and evaluating work for tenure and promotion. We encourage you to read the full statement and to share it with administrators and other colleagues.
