Research and Publications

It is the ALPSP mission to serve, represent and strengthen the community of not-for-profit publishers and those who work with them and to disseminate academic and professional information. We provide representation of our sector, collective services, professional development activities and a wealth of information and advice. As part of this wider programme of activities we carry out regular research studies on specific aspects of learned and professional publishing, to improve understanding by and of publishers. The findings of this research programme are then published by ALPSP as research reports and disseminated widely.  (The online versions are free to ALPSP Members.)
