Rotunda was created for the publication of original digital scholarship along with newly digitized critical and documentary editions in the humanities and social sciences. The collection combines the originality, intellectual rigor, and scholarly value of traditional peer-reviewed university press publishing with thoughtful technological innovation designed for scholars and students.

Rotunda Subscriptions

If you are connecting via a campus Internet connection, you can expect to gain access to any Rotunda publication purchased by your institution. If your institution has not purchased a particular Rotunda publication, contact your institution’s library about ordering. You may also sign up for an individual free trial to evaluate Rotunda before making a purchase decision.

Rotunda Collections

Rotunda publications are available to both libraries and independent scholars as single titles or as collections. The American History Collection includes the sub-collections American Founding Era; Antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction; and the American Century.

Rotunda publications are produced by staff members of UVA Press. We have in-house expertise in Web development; MarkLogic Server programming and administration; development using XQuery, XSLT, JavaScript, JQuery and related tools; and markup or conversion of documents to XML using the TEI Guidelines.

Project Proposals

If you are the author or editor of a digital project that you think might be a suitable candidate for publication within Rotunda, please send an inquiry to UVa Press editor in chief Eric Brandt.
