Bristol University Press is hosting AskUP

The world of publishing can be a mysterious and confusing place. That’s why the Association of University Presses (AUPresses), of which Bristol University Press is a member, decided to launch Ask UP, a resource for academics and the wider public to learn more about scholarly publishing by asking questions about all aspects of publishing and thereby demystify the publishing process.

From December 2021 to February 2022, Bristol University Press is proud to be the host of the site on behalf of the AUPresses. During our tenure, we will be soliciting questions from our community and networks to which we will draft answers and then submit to the Faculty Outreach Committee before uploading to the site. Bristol University Press is the first non-US university press to be a host, so this is a great opportunity for us to ensure that questions of relevance to international authors are included on the site.

If you have a question about publishing that you would like answered, you can submit it here, and we will alert you when the answer is posted on the site.

Similarly, if you feel that any questions on the site need amplification, or internationalising, please ask, and we will update them.

We really hope that AskUP will be a real help to you. Please feel free to share this resource with colleagues and encourage them to use it.
