"The unprecedented speed of change in the electronic publishing environment presents both challenges and significant opportunities for publishers. We are delighted to be working with Oxford University Press and specifically with University Press Scholarship Online. They have a great deal of experience of working with a global network of academic institutions, libraries and scholars. This presence will enable Edinburgh to continue to innovate in how we sell our books and journals using a single online platform whilst maintaining our individual branding''
