AAUP Welcomes Its First Introductory Members

Athabasca University Press and Abilene Christian University Press are the first presses to join AAUP under the Introductory Member category. Athabasca is an open access scholarly press focusing on Canada, the North American West, and the Circumpolar North. Abilene publishes scholarship on Christian themes and history, with a particular focus on the Churches of Christ perspective.

Introductory Members are not-for-profit scholarly publishers that intend to apply for AAUP membership in one of the other membership categories, but don't yet meet publication or staffing requirements. Introductory Member presses may participate in most programs, but may not serve on boards and committees, list titles with Books for Understanding, or engage in certain other AAUP business. Presses may not stay in the introductory membership category for more than three years. For more information or for an application, please contact Susan Patton.
