Oxford University Press Launches Major New Online Platform for Cross-University Press Monograph Content
Oxford University Press (OUP) is pleased to announce the creation of an online platform for university press monograph content.
Having redeveloped the award-winning Oxford Scholarship Online, OUP is launching University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) and inviting the University Press community to take advantage of a fully enabled XML environment.
First phase of content from participating partner presses include Fordham University Press (Fordham Scholarship Online/FSO); The American University in Cairo Press (Cairo Scholarship Online/CSO); The University Press of Kentucky (Kentucky Scholarship Online/KSO); University Press of Florida (Florida Scholarship Online/FLASO); Hong Kong University Press (Hong Kong Scholarship Online/HKSO).
Additional presses are signing up to participate and OUP expects to add their content to UPSO in March 2012. Edinburgh University Press (Edinburgh Scholarship Online/ESO) and Policy Press (Policy Press Scholarship Online/PPSO) are just two additional presses planned for the March 2012 update.
UPSO’s mission is to create an individually-branded home for monographs from each participating university press just as it has done for Oxford Scholarship Online while allowing highly intuitive tools to deep search across all the content in the program.
