University Press Redux Conference

University Press Redux Conference 2018

The University Press Redux Conference will be held in March 2018 and will be curated and hosted by UCL Press with support provided by ALPSP.

Following the success of the founding University Press Redux conference in 2016, organised by Liverpool University Press (LUP), The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) announced that they will now be partnering with university presses to deliver the event every two years.

The next University Press Redux conference will be held in London in March 2018 and will be hosted and curated by UCL Press. At the inaugural University Press Redux conference, more than 150 delegates from a range of presses - large and small, commercial, open access, library-based, UK, US, and European -  and associated industries, heard the views of authors, funders, students, librarians, and some of the most dynamic figures in university press publishing, and gathered to discuss the past, present and future of institutional presses. Anthony Cond, Director of Liverpool University Press said: ‘There was such strong support for the conference that we immediately saw the potential to continue the conversation.’

 Audrey McCulloch, Chief Executive of ALPSP said: ‘The university press sector has undergone a transformation and revitalisation worldwide. Many of our members were involved in the Redux conference and it was an obvious next step to offer administrative support. We are delighted to be involved.’
