AAUP Journals Assembly

Date: Thursday, June 18
Time: 2:00 – 5:00 PM
Location: Sheraton Denver Downtown

Organizers: AAUP Journals Committee (Chair: Jill Rodgers, Journals Marketing Manager, MIT Press)

Gather with the directors, managers, and other leading staff who produce journals across the AAUP landscape. Enjoy this chance to discuss the existing challenges of journals publishing, and explore new opportunities and potential collaborations with your peers. Each press is invited to send a single representative to the assembly. This forum-style session will be moderated, but all participants are encouraged to share information and opinions. Suggestions for topics will be gleaned from the attendees in advance (we are already considering such items as retention strategies; approaches to licensing; projects with your university; proactive acquisitions; and the wake of the Swets bankruptcy).

Registration details: Registration is limited to representatives from AAUP member presses. Each AAUP member press may send 1 representative. There is no charge to attend, but advance registration is required.


We heard your feedback, and worked to provide a renewed emphasis on journals publishing at AAUP 2015. With a journals-focused session in every available concurrent time slot, plus a dedicated pre-meeting workshop, we’ve got plenty of ways to explore journals publishing at this year’s meeting. We look forward to seeing you in Denver! — AAUP Journals Committee
