The University Press in the Digital Age

University Presses in Decline…Not So Fast

The Scholarly Kitchen | November 9, 2015

It is not hard to find plenty of articles, post and comments about the gradual decline of university presses (here in the Scholarly Kitchen as much as elsewhere). But for those who care to look more deeply, there’s a new narrative emerging. Like all publishers, university presses are facing their fair share of challenges but many are successfully redefining their role in the digital age. There is a flourishing of innovation and renewed energy as individual presses chart their paths into the future and an increasing number diverge from business as usual. In celebration of University Press Week, we asked six “pop-up Chefs” to tell us what they think are the unique contributions that university presses make to scholarship and scholarly communication.
