The Publisher Partner Program at De Gruyter has signed University of Texas Press in its latest venture allowing the international distribution of 2250 eBook titles on degruyter.com. This partnership enables the distribution of 100% of the academic press’s content, which includes around 460 frontlist titles and 1660 backlist titles.
The University of Texas Press publishes about 100 titles per year in a wide range of fields like Latin American studies, Texana, anthropology, Latinx studies, Native American studies, African American studies, film & media studies and more. Recent catalogue highlights include Fangirls: Scenes from Modern Music Culture by Hannah Ewens and Futbolera: A History of Women and Sports in Latin America by Brenda Elsey and Joshua Nadel.
Under this agreement, University of Texas Press joins 15 other presses in De Gruyter’s University Press Library Community that allows libraries to purchase the complete frontlist collection of 15 of the world’s most renowned university presses in multi-user access.
“Our work is driven by our mission that books matter, books educate. Publishing books and disseminating knowledge to the general audience is a public responsibility,” said Robert Devens, Director of University of Texas Press. “Our partnership with De Gruyter reinforces our mission and strengthens our ability to serve a global academic community.”
“University of Texas Press’s concentration on Latin American studies gives us a strong boost into humanities and social science studies from the southwestern part of the United States,” said Steve Fallon, Vice President Americas and Strategic Partnerships at De Gruyter. “Their catalogue is a great addition to our substantial collection of high-quality content that academics and librarians can find in one place.”
