Oxford University Press takes another big step in the journey of digital publishers – FE News

  • Adding basic research works, alongside journals, to a single digital platform Oxford Academic further streamline access to high-quality scientific content for the academic community, advancing research

Oxford, England, August 3, 2022: Oxford University Press (OUP) today announced the migration of its book content to Oxford Academic, the online platform for its academic research.

Expanding the platform to include books, as well as journals, will broaden the reach of academic resources from OUP and society partners. At present, over 42,000 books and over 500,000 chapters have so far been uploaded to Oxford Academic, joining the 500 journals and approximately 3 million journal articles already hosted on the platform.

By bringing together basic research books and journals in one online platform, OUP better enables its users to quickly share and seamlessly connect ideas that advance research. This will continue a cycle of scholarship that furthers the mission of the press to create world-class academic and educational resources and to make them available as widely as possible. The platform will be further expanded and updated over time to provide the most efficient and accessible service to users and customers.

Many members of the academic and educational community will benefit from the Oxford Academic update. OUP users, such as researchers, professors, students, and physicians, can easily distribute and reference work. Customers, including academic libraries around the world, now enjoy increased access to high-quality, cutting-edge research publications.

The platform also allows research from OUP’s partners, including authors and societies, to be published faster and reach an even wider potential audience.

Speaking on migration, David Clark, CEO of Oxford Academicsaid: “Scholarly publishing is becoming increasingly digital and this migration is an important step in realizing our potential as a digital publisher. By implementing new digital tools to access and share research faster, we are increasing our reach as a publisher, which, as part of a leading research university, allows us to continue to be at the forefront cutting-edge research. I look forward to seeing the impact of Oxford’s new academic platform for authors, librarians and, of course, readers.
