Our experience of publishing Cultural Studies Review with UTS ePress since 2010 has been been overwhelmingly positive, academically supportive and intellectually coherent. We edit a discipline-leading, internationally-oriented journal that was ranked as an A journal in an earlier ERA exercise. Between the two of us we have published with scores of publishers across the English-speaking landscape. In our view, UTS ePress is the most innovative Australian-based university publisher in the business. This is primarily because UTS ePress is both maintaining the best traditions of university presses and creatively exploring the many and varied options emerging in the world of electronic publishing and distribution. UTS ePress was an early proponent of the principles of Open Access that are now being embraced so broadly across the academic world. It’s no surprise that already in 2015 we have been approached (and not for the first time) by two commercial publishers, including one of the top transnational publishers, who are keen to offer us inducements to leave UTS ePress. We were more than happy to disappoint them and trumpet the virtues of UTS ePress.
