Harvard University Press to publish open access, peer-reviewed journal

Journal of Legal Analysis Harvard University Press has unveiled its deal to publish the open access, peer-reviewed Journal of Legal Analysis. This development is interesting not just in piling on to the open access movement, or pushing peer review into legal academia, but because it raises some fascinating questions about the role of university presses in the digital age. HUP, like its peers, is an arm of a nonprofit institution, so it is under different pressures than the for-profit press. On the other hand, sales of paper publications still generate revenue... so what happens to publishers and journals when "publication" is both digital and open?
