The University of South Carolina Press is hosting Ask UP

September 8, 2021 | by scpress

What should I include in my proposal? How and when should I approach an editor? How do I write a response to peer reviews? When can I expect a contract? Many authors have these questions, but finding accurate answers is often difficult.

To provide authors with information about university press publishing, the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) developed the Ask UP website ( There authors can find answers to frequently asked questions about all stages of the publishing process and may submit questions of their own to be answered.

Each quarter, a different AUPresses member press serves as the Ask UP host. During their term as host, press staff will answer questions received through the website. This rotating process allows authors to learn about the publishing process from a variety of university presses—of different sizes, from different regions, and with different editorial profiles.

Beginning today and throughout the fall the University of South Carolina Press is hosting Ask UP. We look forward to receiving your questions about publishing a book with a university press!
