The Association of European University Presses was founded in 2010 by a number of university presses who feel the need to reach out to each other in order to work together in reaching common goals.
University presses, strongly linked to and rooted in the academic community, are faced with many questions and huge challenges of their own. More than ever, they need to work with their parent institutions to confirm and underline their established value in the process of disseminating scholarly knowledge. In a time where the internet has become the largest and most democratic distributor of information, their commitment to peer review and the assessment of new manuscripts is more important than ever.
The AEUP can help university presses to find each other and get to know each other. Member presses may share information and best practices and can work together to increase their presence on a European level.
