About Redux 2018

The second University Press Redux Conference took place at the British Library on 13 and 14 February 2018, organized by ALPSP and programmed by UCL Press. With over 250 delegates and speakers attending from four continents and 17 countries, the conference presented an international view of the many and varied aspects of university press publishing from presses large and small, new and old, and from the many associated industries and organisations they work with including funders, policy makers, libraries and service providers. The conference was reported widely in the media, including articles in The BooksellerScholarly Kitchen and Research Fortnight

Learned Publishing: An open access supplement based on the 2018 Redux Conference has been published. Read the articles on the Wiley Online Library  site.
