What is the future of academic publishing? We’re celebrating University Press Week (8-14 November 2015) and Academic Book Week (9-16 November) with a series of blog posts on scholarly publishing from staff and partner presses. Today, we present Oxford’s list of ten academic books that changed the world.
Oxford University Press has a rich publishing history which can be traced back to the earliest days of printing. The first book was printed in Oxford in 1478, just two years after Caxton set up the first printing press in England. Since 1478, Oxford University Press has published thousands of academic books that have changed the world. With the help of our colleagues, we pick our top ten.
Which academic book do you think had the biggest impact on the world? Let us know in the comments below.
