University Press Week: online discussion highlights collaboration

upw-logo-2014For University Press Week the Association of American University Presses (AAUP) will be hosting an online discussion to highlight the collaborative work of scholarly presses.

Jen Howard of the Chronicle of Higher Education will moderate online discussion about the future of scholarly publishing. Panelists Peter Dougherty (Princeton UP), Barbara Kline Pope (National Academies Press and AAUP President), and Ron Chrisman (University of North Texas Press) will talk about three innovative and collaborative projects their presses have underway—discussing challenges and successes, and the promise cooperation and collaboration holds for all of us.

  • Princeton University Press and Caltech’s Einstein Papers Project provides the first complete picture of Albert Einstein’s massive written legacy.
  • National Academies Press’s Academy Scope is a visualization of all of the titles that are available on, allowing readers to browse through the reports of the National Academies by topic area and seeing relationships between titles.
  • University of North Texas Press teams up with the University of North Texas Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program and the University of Magallanes in Chile to introduce Magellanic Sub-Antarctic Ornithology.  This project is the result of a decade of research conducted by scientist associated with the Omora Ethnobotanical Park in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve in Chile.
