Learn more about what a University Press is in under 60 seconds from Lou Peck, The International Bunch Founder: 

Hi this is Lou Peck from the International Bunch and I’m going to describe a University Press in under 60 seconds.

So what is a university press? Well it’s an extension to an academic institution that simply publishes content. They are different to commercial publisher as they are not-for-profit and often subsidized by their institution to compensate the shortfall. They’ll publish scholarly content like books and journals and target a smaller audience with a regional or subject focus and most offer open access content. They support publishing efforts of their own institution’s researchers or the wider researcher community. They are aligned to the institution’s mission and objectives as well as work closely with or even in the university library.
