mediastudies.press 2020 Budget

See the estimates in an Airtable base.

In financial terms, 2020 is a transition year for mediastudies.press. The current director, Jeff Pooley, expects to finance the total costs, in advance of a planned library partnership program for 2021 and beyond (see 2020 Plan). The estimated expenses are listed here in order of annual cost:

  • Proofreading (estimated, two books): $2,280
  • Co-working space (CoWork 414): $1,668
  • Publishing platform (PubPub, estimated): $1000
  • DOI registration (CrossRef): $275
  • Automation software (Integromat): $108
  • Web-hosting (DigitalOcean): $77.04
  • Style guide service (Chicago Manual of Style): $39
  • Web software (FastMail): $50
  • Business license fee (City of Bethlehem): $25
  • Domain renewal (DotPress): $20

Note that the proofing is an estimate based on online calculators, and the publishing platform charge is PubPub's informal discount target based on a small, nonprofit like ours.

The total estimated expenditures:

  • $5,542.04

As of January 1, 2020, mediastudies.press has an account balance of:

  • $1,926.74

To cover the 2020 budget, the minimum sum to be raised is:
