Association of American University Presses and Firebrand Technologies Partner to Bring NetGalley to University Presses
In addition to inviting existing contacts to view galleys, publishers can also list their titles in NetGalley’s catalog and approve requests from NetGalley members. NetGalley offers a broad range of marketing programs to reach qualified readers via email, social networking, in online trade advertising, and at industry events.
There is no charge for a reader to sign up for a NetGalley account and create a profile indicating their category preferences as well as their credentials as a professional reader. Members can view title information in the NetGalley Catalog, where they can request galleys from the publisher, and can view galleys they’ve been approved to access within their account.
The Association of American University Presses is an organization of more than 130 non-profit scholarly publishers, dedicated to the support of creative and effective scholarly communications. Through its programs and information resources, AAUP helps its members fulfill their common commitments to scholarship, the academy, and society. Learn more at www.aaupnet.org.
