Green publishing

Environmentally friendly/sustainable publishing. Conventional publishing is anything but ‘green’ – paper production is particularly toxic, and the ethical fig leaves represented by the use of recycled and/or acid-free paper and vegetable dyes do not address the issue of the fuel-inefficient global transport of printed books. Electronic publishing is touted as a green alternative, but the Internet is hardly carbon-neutral either: server farms consume enormous amounts of energy, for instance.

This definition is extracted from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published.
