The transition process is well underway and UAP anticipates releasing CCI Press bibliographic data in early February. Fulfilment of orders through UAP and its distributors will follow, once the transfer of stock is complete.
UAP personnel are reaching out to CCI Press authors, past and current, to open discussions about their projects.
UAP plans to digitize much of the CCI Press backlist so that these critical works, published over
a span of many years, can be more broadly disseminated and accessed. We are asking CCI Press
authors to make contact with UAP director, Linda Cameron, to discuss this project further.

University of Alberta Press acquires CCI Press
Thu, Jan 23, 2014
In December 2013, The University of Alberta Press (UAP) acquired CCI Press from the Canadian Circumpolar Institute. This acquisition is a valuable opportunity for the U of A Press to increase its investment in research communities that are important to Canada and the world. The intent is to continue the publishing program, with CCI Press becoming an imprint of UAP.
