The Art of Acquisitions

From the AAUP Acquisitions Editorial Committee

Acquisitions Hangouts

A monthly series of informal panels, hosted on the YouTube Live platform, organized by the AAUP Acquisitions Editorial Committee on topics that explore “The Art of Acquisitions.” Intended primarily for the AAUP community, the Hangouts will bring groups of acquisitions editors together to share their wit, wisdom, and hard-won experience.

Q&A with attendees will be an important part of the events—look for the chat window in the broadcast window or tweet questions with the #artofACQ tag.

Best Practices for Peer Review

This 2016 handbook is a resource for member publishers, acquisitions editors both new and experienced, faculty editorial boards, scholarly authors and researchers, and new scholarly publishing programs. The Best Practices handbook was developed by the Association's Acquisitions Editorial Committee through a consensus-building two-year process to articulate a set of practices that comprise a rigorous process of peer review.
