Celebrating University Press Week with the Princeton University Press Influence Map

This fall, the Association of American University Presses is celebrating University Press Week from November 11 – 17. It is an opportunity for Princeton University Press and our colleagues to celebrate just what it is we do–our unique contributions to publishing, the academic community, and the world at large.

As part of the celebration, the AAUP has asked member presses to create Influence Maps to demonstrate the international reach of our publishing programs. Our social networking intern Holly Jennings created this map using data from our Fall 2012 catalog of trade, academic trade, and natural history titles. It visualizes the global nature of our business: the authors we publish, the office we support in the UK, and in the case of the natural history titles, the countries that are subjects of our books.

We hope our readers, authors, and colleagues will find good ways to celebrate University Press Week. Please check back periodically for more information on how Princeton University Press is celebrating!

In the meantime, here are some of our fellow University Presses’ influence maps:
