FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS AND BUCKNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS ANNOUNCE NEW PARTNERSHIP
New Brunswick, NJ – Rutgers University Press is delighted to announce a new partnership with Bucknell University Press. Beginning spring 2018, Bucknell books will be fully-integrated into the Rutgers University Press publishing program.
Founded in 1968, Bucknell University Press signs over 30 titles each year in the arts and humanities, with distinguished series in eighteenth-century studies, Latin American studies, and Iberian studies, among others. With over 80 years as a leading social science and humanities publisher, Rutgers University Press will provide Bucknell with the opportunity to deliver their books to the broadest possible audience.
Micah Kleit, director of Rutgers University Press expressed great enthusiasm for the new partnership: “It’s a win-win for both presses: in Rutgers, Bucknell gains a partner that is a kindred university press, one that understands the intrinsic value of such a place and its role in university life and whose prestige and reach has been established now for over eighty years. In Bucknell, Rutgers gains a partner whose list adds depth and breadth to its own. Together, both presses will enjoy the opportunity to expand their visibility in their respective fields and take advantage of the economies of scale that we attain by working together.”
Echoing Mr. Kleit’s enthusiasm, Bucknell University Press director Greg Clingham said: “Sharing with Rutgers a commitment to enterprise, cutting edge scholarship and academic rigor, Bucknell looks forward to generating an exciting synergy in this new partnership.”
We look forward to celebrating the many fruits that this partnership is sure to bear.
