The Public Philosophy Journal (PPJ) offers a model for shaping digital technologies and reconfiguring relations between the academy and the general public. To accomplish this, we employ an open forum, emphasizing accessible and dynamic work focused on knowledge, deliberation, and action concerning public issues. Unlike traditional scholarly journals, we partner with existing communities to facilitate and coordinate ongoing projects across various communities and stages of development. We are not simply bringing the traditional scholarly journal online and providing public access to its contents. Instead, we are updating and expanding existing models of scholarly development, for people as well as for ideas, in order to make collective efforts that better reflect the many ends of scholarly publication.

      Today we are posting the first paper from the Publishing and Publicly Engaged Humanities working group:

      Exploring the challenges associated with the publication of public and publicly engaged humanities scholarship, this paper is the product of a working group convened in February 2020 by Routledge, Taylor & Francis and the National Humanities Alliance. In the course of our group’s work and outlined in the paper we have identified and discussed model practices for publishing on public and publicly engaged humanities work in higher education. As the field of public humanities grows, it is critical that scholarly communications adapt to capture the methodologies and outcomes of these initiatives and the diverse, often digital, outputs created.

      We welcome comments and discussion on the challenges and model practices outlined in the paper and look forward to continuing the conversation about public humanities and publication.
