University Presses Today
A Conversation with Charles Watkinson
New Books Network 2022
The NBN would not exist but for the work of university presses. So every year we celebrate the efforts of our colleagues at UPs during "University Press Week," which happens to be November 14 to 18. This year I talked to Charles Watkinson, director of the University of Michigan Press and president of the Association of University Presses.
We discussed what UPs do, what makes them different from other publishers, how UP books are priced, and the future of open access publishing. We also talked about how to make a career in UP publishing. The AUP has a wonderful resource that will answer all your questions about UPs here.
