On June 15, 2022, Brown University and Emory University published the findings of a spring 2021 summit on multimodal digital monographs. With its focus on scholarly content, the summit convened scholars, institutional support staff, and representatives from university presses. Eight case studies either recently published or in development provided the platform for in-depth, evidence-based discussions on the most pressing concerns and challenges facing stakeholders in digital scholarly publishing today. Topics ranged from cross-institutional collaboration, community engagement, professional development, and diversity, equity, and inclusion to open access, peer review, metadata and discoverability, preservation, and sustainability. This briefing summarizes the report findings on the current and future landscape of digital scholarly publishing.
