 The University of Delaware Press has formed a new partnership with the University of Virginia Press, effective July 1.

With this partnership, UD Press will retain its independent editorial office and board of directors, which consists of UD faculty; and will remain part of the UD Library, Museums and Press, with its administrative home in Morris Library. UVA Press will provide manuscript editorial, design and production services, bringing about new sales, marketing and digital publishing opportunities for UD Press.

“The UD Press is excited to enter into this partnership with UVA Press, a well-respected publisher in fields that complement our own list,” UD Press Director Julia Oestreich said. “Our presses share a commitment to publishing rigorous, innovative scholarship, while understanding the positive impact university presses make on their campuses and in the scholarly ecosystem as a whole. This partnership will allow both presses to increase their own such impact, and will provide Delaware with new … opportunities, including access to UVA’s groundbreaking Rotunda platform [for digital scholarship].”
