First up Press Manager Andrew Lockett delivered a presentation as part of Academic Book Week on the topic of ‘Open Access and the Humanities: A Long Revolution?’. The event, a part of Publishers Association Digital Publishing forum, in association with UCL Information Studies and EDITEUR addressed the topic of Selling Digital Affordances to Scholars exploring how humanities researchers could be encouraged to move to open access. At Sussex University the focus shifted to Open Publishing more generally and where the dynamic and increasingly diverse range of scholarly publishing options is moving. Under the microscope at the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers event How to Build a Successful Open Access Books Programme thoughts presented from UWP were on the related the topic of ‘The Micro-Press, the Publishing Network and Collaboration’ on the 22nd of February.
