University Press Week: Scientific Voices

Happy University Press Week! Help us celebrate university presses Nov. 9-15. Since 2012, members of the Association of University Presses have participated in an annual celebration of University Press Week. Following the example of the first University Press Week, proclaimed by US President Jimmy Carter in the summer of 1978, this event recognizes the impact that a global community of university presses has on every one of us.
