Abstract [en]

If crowdfunding were to become a viable alternative for scholarly publishing, this seems like a promising way to finance academic publications beyond the traditional regimes of funding. For us, this was reason enough to start an experiment aiming at crowdfunding the publication of a book. This chapter is a report of the campaign – and its failure.
