From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A monograph is a specialist work of writing (in contrast to reference works)[1] on a single subject or an aspect of a subject, often by a single author, and usually on a scholarly subject.

In library cataloging, monograph has a broader meaning, that of a nonserial publication complete in one volume (book) or a definite number of volumes. Thus it differs from a serial publication such as a magazine, journal, or newspaper.[2] In this context only, books such as novels are monographs.

  • ✪ Reimagining the Monograph


Hi there. I am John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined. Today I am going to go discuss the broadest of topics: what is a monograph? A monograph, to many people, is another name for a book. A monograph is scholarly a work usually on a single topic. Many times, it is written by one author. It is always non-fiction. A monograph differs from a textbook which is a book used by students for a particular area of study. Unlike a textbook, the purpose of a monograph is to present research or scholarship on a topic. This research is different from an article in several ways, but most notably is a monograph is much longer. There is probably no consensus as to length, but a range might be 25,000 to 75,000 words, plus images and tables. A monograph is usually a single installment and not a multi-volume or periodic series. Monographs many times are a sign of academic advancement by the author as their career and research progresses. Other individuals in a field and libraries are usually considered the prime markets for monographs, but that is changing. Textbooks on the other hand, are required by an instructor or professor and discuss and encompass an area of study for a students’ use. The student may either receive the textbook from the institution or purchase it themselves. The growing costs of textbooks has become a concern to many. Returning to monographs, they traditionally were presented in print form; and then print and eBook form. Now increasingly they are eBook only. They also can also be offered in large eBook collections or databases that institutions might subscribe to. The print version might also be available through a print-on-demand option. Another trend has been toward open access monographs. Most researchers primary interest is the widest dissemination of their work. Open access allows for this, with few barriers to access. The stumbling block for the growth of OA monographs is the required funding by the author to finance its creation. As the publishing word changes, monographs and scholarly books will evolve as well. Lengths, formats, and their digital presentation will continue to reflect the rapidly changing world to adapt to researchers and readers’ needs. Well that’s it. I’ve released a new eBook called, “The Request for Proposal in Publishing: Managing the RFP Process.” It is a short, focused guide to this essential business task that associations or societies use to find potential publishing partners.

In academia

The term "monographia" is derived from the Greek mono- ("single") and grapho ("to write"), meaning "writing on a single subject".[3] Unlike a textbook, which surveys the state of knowledge in a field, the main purpose of a monograph is to present primary research and original scholarship ascertaining reliable credibility to the required recipient. This research is presented at length, distinguishing a monograph from an article. For these reasons, publication of a monograph is commonly regarded as vital for career progression in many academic disciplines. Intended for other researchers and bought primarily by libraries, monographs are generally published as individual volumes in a short print run.[4]

In Britain and the U.S., what differentiates a scholarly monograph from an academic trade title varies by publisher, though generally it is the assumption that the readership has not only specialized or sophisticated knowledge but also professional interest in the subject of the work.[5]

In art

Book publishers use the term "artist monograph" to indicate books dealing with a single artist, as opposed to broader surveys of art subjects.

In biology

In biological taxonomy, a monograph is a comprehensive treatment of a taxon. Monographs typically review all known species within a group, add any newly discovered species, and collect and synthesize available information on the ecological associations, geographic distributions, and morphological variations within the group. See this reference as an example.[6]

The first-ever monograph of a plant taxon was Robert Morison's 1672 Plantarum Umbelliferarum Distributio Nova, a treatment of the Apiaceae.[7]

In United States Food and Drug Administration regulation

In the context of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation, monographs represent published standards by which the use of one or more substances is automatically authorized. For example, the following is an excerpt from the Federal Register: "The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing a final rule in the form of a final monograph establishing conditions under which over-the-counter (OTC) sunscreen drug products are generally recognized as safe and effective and not misbranded as part of FDA's ongoing review of OTC drug products."[8] Such usage has given rise to the use of the word monograph as a verb, as in "this substance has been monographed by the FDA".
