"AU Press is the centre of scholarly publishing expertise for Athabasca University, Canada's Open University. It is the first scholarly press to be established by a Canadian university in the 21st century. We are dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge and research through open access digital journals and monographs, as well as through new electronic media. Our geographical focus is on Canada, the North American West, and the Circumpolar North. One of our mandates is to publish innovative and experimental works (in both fiction and non-fiction) that challenge established and new disciplines. As we are dedicated to making AU Press publications accessible to a broad readership through open access technologies, we cultivate the areas of open-, distance-, and e-learning. We promote neglected forms such as diary, memoir, and oral history. AU Press also publishes website (under its imprint) with content that has scholarly parameters and standards, especially grey literature on distance learning; primary sources in labour studies, Metis and Aboriginal studies, gender studies, and the environment. Domestic Distribution: UBC Press and UTP. Foreign: University of Washington Press (US); Eurospan University Press Group (UK)."
