Advisory Boards

We are dedicated to the authors and editors who publish with us, and the broader research community whom we serve. In addition to the Ubiquity Partner Advisory Board, we also operate a General Advisory Board to help us stay abreast of developments in academic research and publishing. Our North America Library Advisory Board provides perspective from the library community and is in the process of expanding internationally. And we will soon be establishing special interest groups to gather input from members of the broader community in more specific areas.
