University College and UGP team up to provide publishing experience for students

08 September 2020

The University College Groningen (UCG) and the University of Groningen Press (UGP) entered a unique collaboration to give students the opportunity to gain first experience in the publishing world and to publish high-quality work with a university press.

The new collaborative series ‘UCG x UGP’ published by the University of Groningen Press is set up to issue open access creative student works that have a demonstrable academic component. The first three books have recently been published.

As part of its curriculum, UCG facilitates the development and editing of book-length manuscripts. Students can submit proposals for publications; an editorial board selects suitable projects for the series and makes them of a publishable standard, including peer review, editing, typesetting and graphic design.

UGP provides a state-of-the-art open access publishing infrastructure and, if requested, printing on demand.

The series ‘UCG x UGP’ recently brought forth the first publications:
