Amazonia and Global Change Publisher Option 1: World Scientific Publishing Relatively expensive > $100 per copy Slower Difficulties with rights for translation Better quality? Proposal Accepted Publisher Option 2: American Geophysical Union Inexpensive Faster Flexible regarding translation Lower quality? Proposal Pending
Amazonia and Global Change PRICE Target Price = $75 ± $25 NASA has offered to purchase 800 advanced copies If other institutions commit to advanced copies, then we can keep the final price of the book down
Amazonia and Global Change Translation Who can support the cost of translation? Can anyone suggest a publisher for a translated volume willing to work with AGU? Copyright issues to be negotiated.
