Pathways Forward: The University Press in the 21st Century
The University Press Redux Conference, held March 16 and 17 in Liverpool, was billed as the first to focus on university presses in a specifically UK context, but had plenty of representation from—and relevance to—scholarly publishing in the States. Members of nine American university presses joined their European counterparts to exchange insights into the rapidly changing world of scholarly publishing.
Peter Berkery, Executive Director of the Association of American University Presses (AAUP), shared some of the organization’s ambitious plans for the future. As part of its strategy to build a more global network of university presses, the AAUP is developing a new website, inspired by the National Academies Press’s Academy Scope.
