             Subject: Survey for APA Professional Affairs forum

    American Philological Association
    Professional Affairs Forum

    For the third presentation in the APA forum described below, we are
    conducting a short survey to gather some basic information. We invite all
    classics faculty at the ranks of instructor through full professor to take
    this survey, located at http://www.stoa.org/apa/

    Electronic Publishing and the Classics Profession
    Sponsored by the APA Committee on Professional Matters
    Organized by Barbara F. McManus (APA Vice President for Professional
    Matters) and Ross Scaife

    This Professional Matters forum will present an overview of the most
    significant aspects of electronic publication for classicists. University
    presses and scholarly journals are facing severe economic pressures to
    curtail publications in the humanities at the same time as publication
    requirements for tenure and promotion spiral upward. As a profession,
    Classics has not yet formally addressed this issue despite its especially
    negative effect on smaller disciplines. Electronic publication offers one
    possible way to alleviate some of the worst effects of the crisis in
    scholarly publishing. Speakers will explain the potential and challenges
    of scholarly electronic publication with a view toward generating lively
    discussion with the audience.
