Oxford and Fordham UPs Agree to Distribution Deal

19th July 2010

NEW YORK — Effective January 1, 2011, Fordham University Press
print  and  electronic  titles  will  be distributed and sold in the United
States  and  Canada  by  Oxford  University  Press, Inc. (OUP USA). Fordham
University  Press  books  are  currently distributed by New York University

“We’re  very  excited  by this new partnership,” noted Fredric W. Nachbaur,
the  Director  of  Fordham  University  Press. “Oxford’s reputation, market
reach,  and  demonstrated  ability  to  sell  into  all channels will allow
Fordham  to  increase  its  sales  and  market  share  of  our  outstanding
scholarship.   I  see  this  as  an  incredible  opportunity  for  enhanced
recognition and visibility, both for FUP and our authors.”

Fordham  University  Press, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2007,
publishes  primarily in the humanities and social sciences with an emphasis
on  the  fields  of  anthropology,  classics, communications, history, law,
philosophy,  political  science,  religion,  and  sociology,  ,  as well as
literature  and  the  fine arts. Additionally, the Press publishes books of
interest  to  the general public and books focusing on the metropolitan New
York  region. FUP recently announced a new imprint — Empire State Editions
— in an effort to expand and better brand the program..

“We  are  thrilled to have a university press of Fordham’s caliber become a
part  of  our  family of distributed presses,” says Colleen Scollans, VP of
Global  Marketing  at Oxford University Press. “Fordham’s commitment to the
dissemination  of  scholarship  is a perfect fit with Oxford’s own mission,
and  the  synergies  between our editorial programs are obvious. We’re also
pleased  to  represent  a  press  with  such  a  strong regional publishing
program.  Fordham’s  new  Empire State Editions imprint complements our own
list in this area very well.”

Books released prior to January 1, 2011, will ship from New York University
Press,  Fordham  University Press’s current distributor. Backlist sales and
returns  will continue through New York University Press until December 31,
2010.  All  Spring  2011  titles  will  ship from Oxford University Press’s
