Information Studies


UCL Centre for Publishing

Situated within the Department of Information Studies, the Centre is strongly placed to work with colleagues in related (and increasingly more collaborative) disciplines such as information science, digital humanities, and library and archive studies. The Centre's location in central London makes it an ideal base for collaboration with organisations outside UCL which connect to publishing, such as app developers, bookshops, museums, galleries, libraries and archives.

We offer a research-led MA in Publishing, which allows students to pursue a close professional study of trade and academic publishing today. The course offers opportunities to look at STM, journal and open access publishing, and there is a strong emphasis on the digital aspects of publishing in its widest sense.
