Responsibilities

The AUL for Publishing leads 45 talented staff members in seven units: Editorial, Marketing and Outreach, Publishing Production, Publishing Technology, Business and Admin, and Deep Blue Repository and Research Data Services. Working 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 5,000 titles.
