#UPWeek Day 5: Follow Friday


We’ve come to the end of #UPWeek 2014 and today’s bloggers are spreading the love with a little #FollowFriday action. They’ll be discussing some of the most interesting new fields of research that they’re following or who is a must follow for them on social media.

Columbia University Press: “Every Friday, the Columbia University Press blog runs a post called the University Press Roundup in which we highlight posts from around the academic publishing blogosphere. Our Blog Tour post will explain how and why we have made this commitment to a blog series that rarely features our own titles. We will discuss how university press blogs generate publicity for individual titles, but also provide a much-needed environment where scholarship can be presented for a general readership.”

University of Illinois Press: A post discussing the emerging topics and authors in our Geopolitics of Information series.

Island Press: A post about what editors are paying attention to and why those scholars/fields are important.

University of Minnesota Press: John Hartigan, participating in the new Forerunners (short-form publishing) series, is writing a post about the ways in which he uses social media to enhance scholarly connections and establish social-media conversations with regard to his research.

University of Nebraska Press: How should UPs be adding to the conversation on social media and who is doing it right? UNP marketing takes a look at the potential social media has for scholarly publishing.

NYU Press: A post on their forthcoming website for the book, Keywords for American Cultural Studies (Second Edition).

The University Press of Kentucky would like to thank everyone who has participated this week whether it’s blogging, tweeting, or sharing those #UPShelfies. To take a look back at the week here are links to the previous daily rounds from #UPWeek 2014.
