  • facilitate communication between them
  • link the channels of distribution of books
  • support member presses in search for a sustainable open access policy
  • share knowledge about all aspects of scholarly publishing
  • strengthen our common mission to support scholarly publishing
  • form partnership with national and international associations of scholarly publishers and other groups of interest
