We are pleased to share the announcement of change of distribution and publishing arrangements from the Center for Japanese Studies Publications Program, University of Michigan.
As of January 1, 2016, University of Michigan Press (UMP) will handle marketing and distribution of all titles, both new and backlist, in all formats (print and ebook), of the Center for Japanese Studies Publications Program. This expands on an existing relationship between the Center and Michigan Publishing that has made a number of backlist titles available open access.
In addition, UMP will handle the production of new titles (including peer review, contracts, copyediting, and design) and all business reports (including royalty statements and payments). Manuscripts or proposals should still be sent to the Chair of the Center’s Faculty Advisory Committee for Publications, Professor Hitomi Tonomura (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Current distribution arrangements remain unchanged until the end of the year. As of January 1, 2016, books may be ordered from UMP. If you plan to attend the Association for Asian Studies Annual Meeting in Seattle, please stop by the UMP booth.
For any logistical questions about this change, please contact Bruce Willoughby, Executive Editor, CJS Publications (email@example.com).
