University Press Week Blog Tour, Monday, November 11, 2013


It’s Day 1 of the University Press Week Blog Tour and the theme is “Meet the Press”. This means readers get a chance to look inside these university presses and get to know a little more about what goes on behind their doors. Check out these blogs to meet editors and get their thoughts on everything from their work to future of the press. On Friday, Yale University Press Online Marketing Manager Ivan Lett writes on recent transatlantic collaborations of US-UK marketing initiatives for YUP globally published titles, series, and digital products.
