Editors at Choice, a publication of the Association for College and Research Libraries, have named their top 25 academic titles for the year, along with a top 10 of Web sites. The alphabetical, non-ranked list of 25 titles sees university presses and trade houses running neck and neck with university presses 12 books, trade publishers 12 books, and a skirmish sure to develop over where to slot Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press. While not an AAUP member, CSHL says it’s on a “campus,” so we say no contest.
Choice’s full “Outstanding Academic Titles, 2011″ list comprises 629 titles across 54 disciplines and appears in the magazine’s January 2012 issue. Non-subscribers can register for a free online trial to check it out.Return to Top
