The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is posing huge challenges for teachers, researchers and learners. At Cambridge University Press we are committed to supporting you at this difficult time.
The Press plays a global role in education and research and shares its University’s mission to contribute to society through its work. Sharing that research and making our content available can play an important role in tackling shared threats such as this.

Update on conference attendance
Regrettably, the Academic division of Cambridge University Press has decided to cancel all attendance at conferences and events until the end of August. We feel that this is the right decision to minimise any risks to our team and to the wider community. We will keep the situation under review. We have not taken this decision lightly as we know how important academic conferences are to the community and our publishing partners.
In the meantime, we are extending the online discount to 30 percent to match the discount we would have offered to delegates in attendance at the conference. Our teams are also working with conference organisers where possible to offer other forms of support to these communities.
Simply visit our Conferences page, find the relevant meeting, and add the desired title to your cart. The discount will automatically be applied.

The forum of more than 425 Lecturers and Instructors globally will be able to share ideas and tips on their institution’s approach to remote-learning, how to ensure student engagement when teaching remotely, and how to support the care of the mental health and well-being of staff and students. We will be collating the discussion and ideas and sharing it with the wider community soon.
