Ask UP: Authors Seeking Knowledge from University Presses

books lying open on a flat surface

Everything you ever wanted to know about publishing!

  • What is a book proposal?
  • How do I find a press to publish my book?
  • What are good strategies for promoting my book?

The world of publishing can be a mysterious and confusing place for many scholars. Publishers bemoan this. We wish there were a better understanding of what we do and a great knowledge of how authors can publish their books successfully.


That’s why the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) decided to launch Ask UP, a website that can demystify the publishing process, where you can ask all the publishing questions you've always had and find the answers to demystify the publishing process.
