June 23, 2011 - UPSO launch partners announced

We're pleased to announce that this September University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO)  will launch and include content from the American University in Cairo Press, the University Press of Florida, Fordham University Press, Hong Kong University Press, the University Press of Kentucky, and Oxford University Press.

“University Press of Florida is delighted to be among the first presses to join University Press Scholarship Online. In today's constantly changing environment, we know how important it is to work hand-in-glove with academic libraries to make the most up-to-date and rigorously vetted content available to as wide an audience as possible. Through UPSO and its enhanced searchability functions, we anticipate both an increased readership—especially of portions of books—and a resulting improvement in future scholarship,” says Dennis Lloyd, Associate Director/Director of Sales and Marketing, University Press of Florida.

UPSO brings together the best of scholarly publishing from around the world with the same cutting-edge search and discovery functionality that has marked the success of Oxford Scholarship Online to a greatly expanded subject base. “Fordham University Press is delighted to be able to offer libraries electronic access to its books through Oxford's UPSO service. We are fortunate to be associated with such a well-respected and proven platform that offers our content in XML as part of a dynamic search database. I have been impressed with the knowledge of the entire Oxford team from the technological whizzes doing the back-end preparation to the dedicated sales reps selling to libraries. I look forward to continued success,” says Fredric Nachbaur, Director, Fordham University Press.

“The University Press of Kentucky is thrilled about its inclusion as part of the University Press Scholarship Online program. As one of the leaders in the academic community, Oxford is known for being one of the top providers of electronic and print content. With XML tagging and dynamic searchable information, UPSO is clearly a paragon of the digital publishing age,” says John P. Hussey, Director of Marketing & Sales, University Press of Kentucky.

 

January 12, 2011 - Oxford University Press announces major new online platform for cross-university press content

Oxford University Press is pleased to announce the creation of a groundbreaking online platform for university press monograph content. Having redeveloped the award-winning Oxford Scholarship Online platform, OUP is launching University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) and inviting the University Press community to take advantage of a fully enabled XML environment with the cutting edge search and discovery functionality that has marked the success of Oxford Scholarship Online.

“The expansion of Oxford Scholarship Online,” notes Tim Barton, Managing Director of Global Academic Business for Oxford University Press, “to include the research and scholarship of other university presses, creating a single platform searchable across many high-quality programs, represents a step forward in ensuring that academic content is increasingly accessible—and conveniently so.”

Responding to increased demand for online scholarly content, UPSO streamlines the research process by making disparately published monographs easily accessible, highly discoverable and fully cross-searchable via one online platform. Research that previously would have required users to jump between a variety of books, and disconnected websites can now be concentrated through a single search engine. UPSO creates an individually-branded home for monographs from each participating university press just as it has done for Oxford Scholarship Online while allowing highly intuitive tools to deep search across all the content in the program. As such, UPSO will be the premier online research tool—for scholars, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students—and an essential resource for all academic libraries.
