Why Become an AUPresses Sponsor?
AUPresses members collectively publish over 13,000 books and 1,000 journals annually. Members publish ebooks and are experimenting with new platforms, workflows, and dissemination strategies. Sponsor companies and organizations can garner additional exposure for their company’s products and services while helping to promote dialogue and the exchange of ideas about issues in scholarly publishing. Sponsor support helps the meeting in the following ways.
  • Sponsors provide networking events where new ideas are exchanged and connections are made.
  • Sponsors improve the meeting experience by underwriting technology costs, educational speakers, materials production and more.
  • Sponsors provide travel grants to junior staff who will bring fresh perspectives, and who will expand their publishing knowledge and networks by attending the meeting
