Books by UTMN Publishing House Commended in Frankfurt

International 19 October 2017
The 69th Frankfurt Book Fair is one of the most important events for publishers worldwide. It is a place where global publishing trends are set. Annually, more than 7 000 large and small publishing houses from more than 100 countries present their books in Frankfurt. 

“This year, UTMN Publishing House was invited by the President of the International Publishers Association (IPA), Dr Michiel Kolman, to represent Ural and Siberian university presses at the conference, as the University of Tyumen is very actively involved in the reformation of the educational and scientific publishing market in Russia,” commented Sergey Simakov, Director of the UTMN Publishing House. 

As part of the fair, IPA organized the International Convention of University & Academic Presses conference. Moreover, UTMN publishers took part in a meeting with the Iranian Association of Academic Publishers (IRAAP), where they discussed the peculiarities of publishing technical literature in Russia and Iran as well as the possibility of an information exchange with the best Russian university presses.  

Participation in the largest international book fair allowed UTMN books to stand shoulder to shoulder with publications from the world's top universities. Plans for cooperation with German publishers were also discussed.
