A celebration of the diversity, innovation and influence of academic books

What is Academic Book Week?

Academic Book Week (#AcBookWeek) is a week-long celebration of the diversity, variety and influence of academic books throughout history run by the Booksellers Association. #AcBookWeek is returning for a fourth year from 4-9 March 2019.

#AcBookWeek aims to:

  • Make the academic book more accessible to a wider general audience
  • Promote the skills and services of bookshops and libraries
  • Promote the processes and skills of creating an academic book by both academics and publishers
  • Open up opportunities for conversation and collaboration between publishers, booksellers, librarians, and researchers
  • Extend the debate about the Academic Book of the Future for The Academic Book of the Future Project
  • Enhance the wider debate about the value of arts and humanities research in the UK
