Shortlisted for the IPG Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year award

We are thrilled to be shortlisted for the Independent Publishing Awards ProQuest Academic and Professional Publisher 2023, alongside the fabulous Bloomsbury, Class, Edinburgh University Press and Edward Elgar.   

The judges said: “You can see the energy in Bristol’s publishing and its passion for social justice. It’s consistently innovative and isn’t afraid to try new things.” 

2022 was an outstanding year for BUP. We had two major launches: our new books and journals platform, Bristol University Press Digital, and our Open Access Global Social Challenges Journal. It was also a record year for sales and commissioning. 

Alison Shaw, Chief Executive Officer says: "This nomination recognises our entire team. We can only deliver on our mission and strategy because of the efforts of every department and the University of Bristol’s support. We are very proud of what we have achieved and to be included on this list of such worthy nominees." 

The winner of the award will be announced on 22 March 2023.
