A celebration of the diversity, innovation and influence of academic books.

 

Academic Book Week (#AcBookWeek) – the week-long celebration of the diversity, variety and influence of academic books throughout history is returning for a third year from 23-28 April 2018.

Academic Book Week is a week-long celebration of the diversity, variety and influence of academic books aiming to open up a dialogue between the makers, providers and readers of academic books. #AcBookWeek takes place from 23-28 April 2018 at venues across the UK.

  • Increase awareness of the academic book (particularly the arts and humanities academic book), engaging media and alerting policy-makers to its importance as part of the intellectual ecosystem of the UK
  • Make the academic book more accessible to a wider general audience
  • Promote the skills and services of bookshops and libraries
  • Promote the processes and skills of creating an academic book by both academics and publishers
  • Open up opportunities for conversation and collaboration between publishers, booksellers, librarians, and researchers
  • Extend the debate about the Academic Book of the Future for The Academic Book of the Future Project
  • Enhance the wider debate about the value of arts and humanities research in the UK
