UCL Press And Academic Book Of The Future Announce Interactive Workshop To Celebrate Academic Book Week
By Alison Fox, on 17 January 2017
UCL Press and Academic Book of the Future are delighted to invite you to an event at the British Library to celebrate the publication of the Academic Book of the Future BOOC during Academic Book week. To register, please visit: http://bit.ly/2jFfLvm
UCL Press launched in June 2015, and it makes all its scholarly books and journals available freely online in open access form, as well as in print. Since it launched, it has published 30 books and 5 journals and its books and journals have reached more than 180,000 readers in over 190 countries around the world. As well as traditional monographs, UCL Press publishes innovative digital research on a browser-based platform, featuring articles and chapters of different lengths, different formats (blog, video, audio), and which are added over time – and so the BOOC was born (Books as Open Online Content). The first book in this format features the research outputs from the Academic Book of the Future project, an AHRC/British Library funded project led by researchers at UCL and Kings College London.
The UCL Press team will be available to:
• Demonstrate BOOC live:
• Answer questions about its open access model – or anything else about its publishing activity
• Show its books
• Present its new publishing services model for other institutions who wish to set up their own
A presentation about UCL Press will take place at 11 – 11.15, followed by a Q&A session.
