UCL Press and AcBookFuture BOOC interactive workshop

Posted on

Time: 10.30-12.30

Location: British Library, 96 Euston Rd, Kings Cross, NW1 2DB

UCL Press launched in June 2015, and it makes all its scholarly books and journals available freely online in open access form, as well as in print. Since it launched, it has published 30 books and 5 journals and its books and journals have reached over 75,000 people in over 190 countries around the world. As well as traditional monographs, UCL Press publishes innovative digital research on a browser-based platform, featuring articles and chapters of different lengths, different formats (blog, video, audio), and which are added over time – and so the BOOC was born (Books as Open Online Content). The first book in this format features the research outputs from the Academic Book of the Future project, an AHRC/British Library funded project led by researchers at UCL and Kings College London.

UCL Press team will be available to:

  • Demonstrate BOOC live:
  • Answer questions about its open access model – or anything else about its publishing activity
  • Show its books
  • Present its new publishing services model for other institutions who wish to set up their own
  • Presentation

A presentation about UCL Press will take place at 11 – 11.15, followed by a Q&A session.
