• Celebrating Academic Book Week 2017

    Posted by Dawn Cockcroft on 2017-01-23


Happy Academic Book Week 2017! Following on from the success of Academic Book Week 2016, this international celebration of academic books is back for a second year with a focus on diversity, innovation and influence. At the University of Huddersfield Press we are really proud of our academic book portfolio , and are particularly excited about our open access publications programme, which is set to continue to expand over the next few years. Publishing our academic research books both in print and as online open access versions gives us the opportunity to widen our readership and really achieve one of our main objectives: to make high quality research available and accessible to all. There is a great range of seminars, debates and lectures on throughout this week to celebrate the academic book, and we will be following #AcBookWeek and @AcBookWeek to keep up to date. I have curated a brief list below of the online events this week but for full details visit the official site: https://acbookweek.com/ Monday 23rd Altmetric for books: tracking engagement and driving discovery Time: 15:30 – 16:30 http://wp.me/p6gmfO-5H Napier University and Blackwell’s Edinburgh: Innovations in Learning and Teaching Giveaway Time: January 23 – 27 Location: online https://twitter.com/innovationsenu .
