Universities as a site for innovation in publishing

17 Apr 2013, 10:00 - 11:00

Thames Room, EC1


There is now a good deal of publishing activity at UK universities, partly because of technological change, and aprtly because of concern about 'impact'. Activity includes: University presses that use print-on-demand technology to produce monographs and edited collections; online magazines and journals; digital scholarly editions and archives; experimentation with form and content inthe classroom, and in faculty practice; dissemination of scholarship via Twitter, research blogs, open access repositories and the like; and peer reviewed students' journals.

This workshop - supported by the NAWE (National Association for Writers in Education) considers the new thinking that the academy can bring to the publishing industry. It will explore a series of case studies and encourage participants to bring their own project ideas for discussion.

The panel will interest practitioners in HE university presses, academic journal publishers, independent presses, literary trade publishers, 'non-traditional' publishers with a public service brief, such as museums and galleries, and those engaged with big-picture thinking about the future.
