Publish with Us

AU Press has cultivated a strong list of publications in the areas of distance education, labour studies, Métis and Indigenous studies, gender studies, and the environment. However, we welcome superior works of scholarship, regardless of subject area. We also have a particular interest in often neglected forms of social and cultural history, including oral history and memoir, and in works that are broadly iconoclastic—that experiment with narrative form and/or challenge received wisdom. For a list of our series, please visit our series page.

Should you be interested in submitting a manuscript to AU Press, please submit a prospectus to the director at เกมส์ยิงปลาออนไลน์ and review our Author Publication Guide.

Why should you publish with AU Press?

Open Access

In keeping with Athabasca University’s mission of overcoming barriers to education, AU Press is committed to the open access dissemination of scholarship to readers around the world.

As such, most AU Press publications are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) and the author retains copyright to the work.

All AU Press books are published in print and digital formats and are distributed internationally.

Editorial Excellence

AU Press is committed to editorial excellence. Our publications undergo rigorous peer review and thorough editing. AU Press editors work closely with authors on their manuscripts before and after peer review to ensure that authorial voice is retained and that documentation is accurate and that ideas are presented not only with clarity, but refinement.

Award-Winning Design

Digital publishing is sometimes associated with poor production quality. However, AU Press believes in the importance of design, both for reading and marketing. Our books are consistently selected for the Association of American University Press’s annual Book, Jacket, and Journal Show. AU Press books are often shortlisted or win the design awards at the Alberta Book Publishing Awards. See the full list of our awards on our awards page.

Creative Marketing

Each book published by AU Press receives its own marketing campaign. The immediate online access provided by our open access mandate makes social media a particularly effective marketing tool.

Therefore we put as much emphasis on digital marketing as traditional forms of publicity. You can find evidence of our sustained presence on social media and various other media we have created to promote our titles.

We regularly attend conferences to make connections and exhibit our books. Most notably, we exhibit annually at the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities and our books are on display at conferences such as Native American and Indigenous Studies Association, American Historical Association, American Political Science Association, American Sociological Association, Under Western Skies, Ethnohistory, Distance Teaching and Learning, Word on the Street, World Conference for Online Learning, Parkland Institute, and many others. When we cannot attend a conference or event in person, we work in partnership with our distributors to ensure that our books are visible at relevant events.
