UCL Press celebrates 8 million book downloads
UCL Press is delighted to announce that its books have now been accessed more than 8 million times in countries and territories throughout the world. Explore in more detail here.
Since launching in 2015, the Press has published more than 300 academic books – including monographs, edited collections and textbooks- in a wide range of subjects. UCL Press books have been downloaded in 242 countries and territories across the world, reaching readers in countries as far afield as the Northern Mariana Islands and Antarctica, in addition to serving the needs of scholarly communities closer to home.
The 8 millionth download was The India Museum Revisited by Arthur McGregor. Co-published with the V&A, the book provides a full examination of the museum’s founding manifesto and evolving ambitions.
UCL Press continues to demonstrate the success of a model that seeks impact and visibility over revenue generation, and that reaches global audiences not previously considered possible for scholarly books and journals via traditional sales models. The Press looks forward to celebrating its 8 millionth download soon!
