*With digital publishing comes the uncoupling of content from print: why
should those six years of work (or more) result in only a physical book
that sits on a few shelves? Why can’t the content be made available freely
online via open access?*

*Isn’t this the great ethical stance: making knowledge available to all?*
Won’t opening up access to the detailed, considered arguments held within
humanities monographs do wonders for the reputation and impact of subject
areas whose contribution to society is often under-rated?
