Gorgias 360: Information for Publishers
The library market in North America and Europe is moving at an accelerated pace towards eBooks. Academic libraries are now setting a specific expense line in their budgets for eBook acquisition, and the funds available are increasing every year. Yet many publishers outside North America and Europe find it difficult to circulate their publications across academic libraries and are not benefiting from this vital new market.
Gorgias 360 provides a way for publishers from all countries, publishing in any language, to make their content available in eBook and on-demand format without losing the intellectual rights to their publications. As Gorgias Press is already established as a major academic publisher across numerous humanities disciplines, our Gorgias 360 imprint already has the trust of librarians thanks to our reputation for excellent content and academic integrity. Your books will appear within the Gorgias 360 brand with your own imprint, thus keeping the intellectual rights within your publishing house.
Why is Gorgias 360 Important for Libraries and Scholarship?
Most North American and European scholarship does not routinely consider first-class scholarly output from other regions, either because such publications are not acquired by western libraries or because the content is written in non-Romance languages. But eBooks and advancements in AI mean this situation is changing rapidly.
Gorgias 360 aims to provide equal opportunity to all academic publishers across the world. Through our new Gorgias 360 service, academic libraries in North America and Europe can now acquire your content in eBook form as easily as they can purchase local western publications. This means scholars will be able to utilize your titles in their research as they would any other European or North American publication.
Technology is opening up scholarship. Your books do not need to be in English to be part of Gorgias 360. Advancements in AI permit scholars to access research even when written in languages incomprehensible to them. On recognizing a publication of interest in any language, as experts in their field, scholars can simply plug sections of texts into translation engines, get a strong overview of the direction of scholarship and, ultimately, use AI tools to fully transform texts into their own language. For this reason, academic libraries are excited about the opportunities presented by Gorgias 360.
