#UPWeek’s blog tour runs today through Friday, centered around a daily university press theme. Learn what’s “Surprising!” about what we, along with our colleagues University Press of Florida, University Press of New England, University of Michigan Press, University Press of Mississippi, University Press of Kansas, University Press of Kentucky, University of Nebraska Press, and University of Wisconsin Press do and publish by reading these excellent blogs today.

The AAUP’s website features a “surprising” slide show today as well, where you can learn about the University of California’s entries into the world of Open Access publishing, Collabra and Luminos.

And finally, today’s The Scholarly Kitchen website has the second installment in a series of guest blog posts from Alison Mudditt, Director of UC Press, “University Presses in Decline: Not so Fast…“, which focuses on the all-important contributions of academic presses as we kick off 2015’s exciting #UPWeek.
