Dear All,

I work on an <http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/> funded project,
<http://www.t-mus.ac.uk/>, in which part of our work includes
investigating the utility of the Semantic Web for music research. One
of the outputs we are working towards we are calling a 'book', but we
would like to produce something more digital than just a traditional,
in our case multi-authored, monograph. We're hoping to be able to
integrate things such as reproducible research methods
(e.g. executable code examples), and SemWeb published data and to be
able to provide customisable reading paths for different
readerships. We'd also like it to be Open Access.

Within the project we have the technical expertise to publish data and
code and to author interactive content in HTML, but what I'm trying to
investigate now is whether there are any publishers who would consider
working with such content. Groups such as
<http://universitypublishingonline.org/> provide some of the
infrastructure such as DOIs for books, and access management, but they
still only really put a bunch of PDFs on the Web.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I should look? I currently
remain convinced that we should work with a publisher, but perhaps
someone may want to persuade me otherwise?
