Our Scholar is in Residence…

…blogging about our new PhD Internship in Publishing and Editing.

As Scholar-in-Residence at the University of Alberta Press (UAP), one of my goals has been to develop a deeper and more substantive academic relationship between the Press and students. That goal has come to fruition: the University of Alberta Press(UAP) has partnered with the Department of English and Film Studies (EFS) to host a doctoral internship as an integral component of a PhD Concentration in Editing and Publishing beginning in Fall 2018.

Goodbye, UAlberta Press!

adieu, adiós, aloha, arrivederci, ciao, auf Wiedersehen, sayonara, shalom, totsiens, viszontlátásra, zàijiàn & ka wâpamitinasamena

Tomorrow, September 1, 2017 is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I’m looking forward to it; however, just like when I reach the end of a great book I am sad, too. The stories, not just the ones we published, but all the life stories that were a part of my time and experience since I joined UAlberta Press in 2001 are archived in my memory. They are precious to me. I will not forget.

Just yesterday we received an email from a grateful author. In part Tony Robinson-Smith said, “Wonderful work! I just received my complimentary copies and have read the book through. Clearly you all belong to a winning team. This is a highly polished piece of work, inside and out, that makes the most of my narrative. Clap yourselves on the back!”

Thank you to the team, Alan Brownoff, Basia Kowal, Cathie Crooks, Duncan Turner, Mary Lou Roy, Monika Igali and Peter Midgley. It has been my pleasure and privilege to work with you.

Best wishes, Linda

Note: A reception in honour of Linda was held on May 11, 2017.

Director’s Message, Fall 2017 Catalogue

This director’s message is bittersweet for me as I have declared my intention to retire from the University of Alberta Press in August 2017. As always I feel privileged to introduce you to a new group of books for the fall 2017 season.

  • Tony Robinson-Smith has a wonderful story of traveling to Bhutan to teach English and ending up running hundreds of kilometers across the Himalayas to raise funds to send kids to school.
  • We welcome Myrl Coulter back to UAlberta Press, with her collection of short stories about family secrets and haunting losses.
  • We are pleased to introduce Inuit writer Norma Dunning who gives us sixteen gritty and perceptive short stories.
  • Tim Lilburn’s meditation on philosophy and environmental consequences traces a relationship between mystic traditions and the political world.
  • Doris Jeanne MacKinnon brings us the story of two Metis women born during the fur trade—one from the French-speaking free trade tradition and one from the English-speaking Hudson’s Bay Company tradition.

Fair Dealing: How fair is it?

February 21 to 24 was Fair Dealing Week at the University of Alberta. On the opening day our director, Linda Cameron, was a member of a panel called Fair Dealing: How fair is it? Other panelists included Cameron Hutchison, UAlberta Faculty of Law and Howard Knopf, Macera & Jarzyna, Ottawa.

The highlight of Linda’s presentation included the economic impacts of fair dealing based on a report commissioned by Access Copyright and prepared by Price Waterhouse Cooper (PwC). The economic impacts of the Copyright Modernization Act (2012) and the resulting fair dealing guidelines have been widespread. Movement away from collective licensing by K-12 and post-secondary institutions through Access Copyright and the application of fair dealing guidelines have resulted in a drastic decline in revenues for many educational and trade publishers.

The PwC report clearly demonstrates that, “Without licensing income—a significant source of income for content producers…many Canadian publishers will not only reduce their content output, but may be forced to exit the educational publishing market.

At UAlberta Press we understand the social value and virtue of sharing ideas widely; we are, after all, a scholarly publisher who seeks to do exactly that for our creators. The people we publish are scholars and writers who spend years researching, contemplating, and experiencing: they then bring that creative thought and knowledge into their written work.

During her presentation, Linda noted the permissions policy we follow when working with another’s intellectual property. A lot of thought and discussion went into the development of the UAlberta Press permissions policy, and not all of it focussed on Canada’s 2012 Copyright Modernization Act and the guidelines around fair dealing.

We pay respect, not by simple adherence to a particular copyright act, nor by considering what we can “get away with” under the law. Instead, we look at intellectual property as a manifestation of a particular form of very hard work and deserving of utmost respect.

We will leave off with a question for authors and other creators: What approach do you take to permissions, citations, and attributions? What do you think is fair?

WSUP’s New Website

Wayne State University Press, our distributor in the U.S, has a new website! Their Technical Project Manager, Bonnie Russell, sent us an enthusiastic email showing off the new site: wsupress.wayne.edu.

With improved navigation, enhanced book information, and a beautiful new design, book buyers will enjoy a vastly improved browsing experience for the Press’s 900+ books and 8 academic journals. The site also contains a wealth of targeted information for professional booksellers, librarians, and professors, including flexible views of products by series, subject, and publication date, and up-to-date pricing and availability. For the first time, the Press is able to list its nearly 200 e-book titles, which are available for purchase at a number of vendors.

Have feedback on the site? Tweet @wsupress or email wsupressmarketing@wayne.edu.

Congratulations on a beautiful piece of work!

Letter to Politicians Regarding Copyright

Recently, our director participated in a discussion about the future of copyright legislation. The ideas presented there were also built into a letter that we sent out with our most recent catalogue, to Members of the Legislative Assembly in Alberta, as well as our Members of Parliament and the Senate. The text from Linda Cameron’s presentation is excerpted below.

“The government in partnership with business will shape our future. Because the raw material of the future is knowledge, ensuring a climate of support and protection for those whose business it is to create and disseminate knowledge is essential. Copyright is a key part of that climate.

Imagine you are a farmer and you till the soil, select the perfect seeds, plant, spray, irrigate and finally are about to harvest your crop and earn revenue. Suddenly swarms of people are permitted to go onto your land and take whatever they choose from your carefully cultivated crop and not pay you for it. Would you have the money and the heart to start again?

Imagine you are a business person and you have a unique product to sell. You carefully explore the marketplace, you contract with suppliers, and you create and promote your product. Just as you are about to open your doors and welcome your customers swarms of people are permitted to go into your place of business and take as much as they like of your unique product and not pay you for it. Would you have the money and the heart to start again?

Knowledge is a product of research and experience gained through dedication and hard work. It has value and the people who invest in the creation of knowledge, from the originator (authors, musicians, playwrights, etc.) through to the distributors (publishers, etc.) need your commitment to support their right to be compensated for their investment in a fair and equitable manner.

Every one of us, from the time when we were young children, has held a book in our hands and cherished the experience. We need books to learn from, to enjoy, to share our stories, and to give and receive as gifts. What if there were no more books? What if the culture of “free” put publishers out of business, because they couldn’t afford to be in the business of producing books? What would a grandmother read to her grandson, if not a book – complete with pictures, worn edges, and the history of the other children who had been read to, from that very same book? And what about the excitement of receiving a brand new book, all their own . . . What would libraries offer to their members? What would people read on the way to and from work on public transit, if not books? The ramifications of opening up and changing copyright legislation in our country are huge and potentially devastating.

What can you do? Talk with people who create and who publish. Then talk with your colleagues. Finally, when the time comes to consider new copyright legislation, remember our ability to not only compete but to lead the world in a knowledge-based economy rests in your hands. Please, before you vote to change copyright laws in our country, inform yourself, and then vote wisely.”

Director’s Message

It is our 40th anniversary, and while we reflect with pride on our publishing

achievements (to review our active and forthcoming titles, authors, and awards,

please visit http://www.uap.ualberta.ca), we are looking forward to a future of

continued innovation in the ways we make knowledge available to the world.

I would like to thank our campus partners for their support of our work,

including:

Ernie Ingles (Vice-Provost & Chief Librarian) and Mary-Jo Romaniuk

(Associate Vice-Provost) of Learning Services;

Todd Anderson (Director) and Ross Jopling at the U of A Bookstore; and,

• All of our colleagues at Supply Management Services, and especially Bob

Foshaug, who has just retired from the warehouse operation.

There are many others whose help and support on campus is critical to our

success and to each of them I say, “Thank you!”

Partners off campus are important to our efforts to ensure our books are widely

known and available. In particular I would like to thank:

Kate Walker & Company, whose enthusiastic sales team represents our books

from coast to coast to coast in Canada;

• Brenda and Larry Sisnett at GTW Limited, our Canadian distributors;

• Melanie Warren and Andrew Jones at Gazelle Academic, our UK distributor;

• Gabe Dotto and the team at Michigan State University Press, our US

distributor; and,

• Rachael McDiarmid of Inbooks, our distributor in Australia and New Zealand.

The University of Alberta Press continues on its mission in support of academic

endeavour, bringing new ideas to readers everywhere. We fully embrace

the pioneering spirit astir in the rapidly shifting landscape of publishing—

exploring the uncharted ways that “books” are created, edited, designed,

distributed, and read, and how authors’ and readers’ needs and expectations

are met.

Best wishes,

Linda D. Cameron

Director
