Professional Issues: Hiring, Tenure and Promotion

One of the greatest challenges facing the scholar preparing an e-book is not whether an audience will find the book, but whether the department and administration responsible for the future of this scholar will consider an e-book when reviewing the scholar's dossier for hiring, tenure, and promotion. In the same way that the History E-Book Project plans to work with learned societies, it will work with university faculties and administrators, in conjunction with learned societies, to develop guidelines and standards for e-books that colleagues and administrators would consider as part of a candidate's dossier. With the guidance of the Review Board, the project hopes to identify universities and departments that would be willing to participate in the first phase of this process.
