University Press Week: Science

Happy University Press Week! The university press community amplifies voices, disciplines, and communities.

University presses publish authors from around the world and right at home, writing on subjects that are broad, niche, and every level of inquiry in between. Without university presses, many of these authors or subjects would not be heard so clearly in the marketplace of ideas.

Today read about Science from the following presses. Be sure to share and tweet your own university press experiences using the hashtag #UPWeek.

Princeton University Press Director Christie Henry writes about the evolution of science publishing at university presses, with a focus on how the evolution and long-term sustainability of these programs depend on the ability to create equitable and inclusive populations of authors.
