Happy University Press Week! Help us celebrate university presses November 14-18. Since 2012, members of the Association of University Presses have participated in an annual celebration of University Presses. 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.
This year’s theme for UP Week is “Next UP.” This is meant to highlight the dedicated work performed by those in the university press community to seek out, engage, advance, and promote the latest scholarship, ideas, best practices, and technology.
The #UPweek blog tour today features “What’s #NextUP in journals?” Visit the following press blogs to learn about a new journal, initiative, or innovative periodical project:
