Global Partner Program

In 2021, AUPresses launches a pilot Global Partner Program that seeks to create transnational networks for collaboration and shared learning between members of the Association and nonmember scholarly publishers located in the Global South.

Interested eligible nonmember publishers are paired with member partner presses for a one-year term. The partnering presses will share insight into their institutional and organizational contexts, provide opportunities to develop global professional networks, and facilitate staff contacts throughout publishing departments. The Association offers access to valuable membership benefits to the nonmember Global Partners for the year, including access to data resources, professional handbooks, our UP Commons community network, and members-only events.

To learn more about the Global Partner Program, contact globalpartner@aupresses.org.

African Minds (Cape Town, South Africa) will work with AUPresses member Duke University Press (Durham, North Carolina, US).
