Project MUSE Creates New Departments and Positions Ahead of Its 30th Birthday
Project MUSE announced the following:
For nearly 30 years, Project MUSE has been the trusted and reliable source for access to essential humanities and social science research, as an integral part of the scholarly communications ecosystem and platform of choice for respected not-for-profit publishers. From its grant-funded origins piloting a small collection of online journals from the Johns Hopkins University Press, MUSE has grown to host more than 800 journals and more than 90,000 books from nearly 400 leading university presses, scholarly societies, and related publishers. As MUSE approaches its third decade, we are pleased to announce several enhancements to the organization which expand our capacity and reach, while supporting our strategic priorities and our commitment to equity and inclusion.
These enhancements include a new library and publisher partnerships department; a new department focused on communication, marketing, and engagement; an expanded business operations and intelligence practice via the new position of business operations manager; and a forthcoming Subscribe to Open program for its flagship journal collections.
