Cambridge University Press, part of the University of Cambridge, is pleased to invite Cambridge Postdocs to a series of sessions about publishing. Experienced publishers from a range of academic areas will aim to answer your questions about changes in international academic publishing, submitting journals articles and book proposals, REF criteria and peer review. They will also give practical guidance on ensuring that a submission has the best possible chance of acceptance.

These informal lunchtime sessions will be hosted by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs in the Postdoc Centre @ 16 Mill Lane. They will be ‘brown bag’ style (bring your own lunch), with tea and coffee provided. The first, ‘Academic Book Publishing in the Humanities’ takes place on 3 February. Watch out for new sessions, which will be posted on the OPDA website and PdOC Society newsletters.

Academic Book Publishing in the Humanities

Linda Bree will talk about the opportunities and challenges of monograph publishing in the humanities. She will describe the range of publishers, and the kinds of publishing, that are available to scholars, and will explore the ways in which publishing is developing to meet the changing requirements of individuals and institutions, including REF criteria.  She will then lead a general discussion on the practical aspects of publishing a monograph and will welcome questions and comments.

 

Linda Bree has twenty years' experience in publishing and is Editorial Director, Arts and Literature, at Cambridge University Press, where she commissions books in British and European literature, and manages a team of editors across literature, drama, music and art, with an overview of other humanities subjects. She has a doctorate in literature from the University of London; she has written widely, for different publishers, on a range of topics across eighteenth and nineteenth-century literature, and has a particular interest in scholarly editing.
