Responsibilities

The AUL for Publishing leads 50 talented staff members in seven units: Editorial, Marketing and Outreach, Publishing Production and Fulfillment, Publishing Technology, Administrative Services, Copyright, and Deep Blue (U-M's institutional repository). Toward the shared goal of ensuring that the benefits of scholarship accrue to everyone, these units publish scholarly and educational materials in a range of formats for wide dissemination and permanent preservation; develop digital publishing models as portals for knowledge sharing; create permanently accessible faculty publications and related materials; host and publish online, open access journals; consult and educate the campus about publishing and copyright; reissue faculty publications and collections materials as reprints and electronic editions; and advocate for the broadest possible access to scholarship everywhere. The University of Michigan Press is the flagship imprint, focused on the publication of around 100 peer-reviewed, editorially-enriched books annually with a backlist of around 3,000 titles.
