APH Press: Ironing Out the Details
The new APH Press has now completed its second month of operations as we embark on producing new publications while continuing the legacy of AFB Press.
Over the last few weeks, we have been busy working on books in development and ensuring that the existing Press titles remain available for sale through a variety of distribution channels. Below is a brief update and overview of the current status of the Press.
We are excited to announce that Larry Marotta will begin work as the APH Press executive editor on September 24th. Larry comes to APH with more than 20 years’ experience in publishing, including having served as executive editor, production editor, and accessibility manager for major textbook and scholarly publishers. Larry’s expertise and commitment to excellence will help us continue moving the Press forward to complete our ongoing projects more quickly and position us to take on new work in the future.
You will have an opportunity to meet Larry and learn more about the Press during our session at APH’s forthcoming Annual Meeting.
We have established the email address firstname.lastname@example.org as the contact for the team responsible for the transition of editorial operations to APH. Please continue using this email for Press editorial communications.
