Three Press Directors Weigh in on Collaboration in Scholarly Publishing
Three Press Directors Weigh in on Collaboration in Scholarly Publishing As part of University Press week, November 9–15, the American Association of University Presses (AAUP) broadcast an online panel on Collaboration in Scholarly Publishing via Google Hangouts. Moderated by Jennifer Howard, a senior reporter at the Chronicle of Higher Education, the panel featured Peter Dougherty, director of Princeton University Press (PUP); Barbara Kline Pope, AAUP president and the executive director for The National Academies Press (NAP); and Ron Chrisman, director of the University of North Texas (UNT) Press. As Howard pointed out, lately collaboration can seem like a buzzword—“this year’s ‘innovation’ or ‘disruption.’” However, the three panelists’ discussion of their interesting and varied collaborative efforts showcased the diversity that academic publishing partnerships can encompass.
