Advocating for alliances between scholars, libraries, and scholarly presses to promote innovative digital research publication.

The Chrysalis project explores the design and implementation of vertically integrated research alliances (VIRAs) comprising scholars, libraries, and scholarly presses. VIRAs could constitute a chrysalis of sorts for innovative digital research publications. To better understand this model, Educopia Research and the University of North Texas are investigating potential revenue streams and sustainability models, including possible redistribution of current university library investments in information resources and the creation of new sources of revenue generation to sustain research publishing.
