ALLCAPS is the University of Alberta Press blog. We’ve loosened our collars and rolled up our sleeves in order to indulge the more tangential exploits of university publishing—at least at Alberta Press. We promise to announce our books and their brilliant authors and editors as new titles come available; but we’d especially like ALLCAPS to be a forum for both light-hearted observations and more critical commentary about the state of publishing, particularly for us as university publishers.
University of Alberta Press publishes in the areas of biography, literature, natural history, regional interest, social sciences, travel narratives, and reference books. We contribute to the intellectual and cultural life of Alberta and Canada by publishing well-edited, research-based knowledge and creative thought that has undergone rigorous peer-review, is of real value to natural constituencies, adheres to quality publication standards and is supported by diligent marketing efforts.
Please stay in touch.
