Academic Publishing Partnership Program In Urban Education & Black Studies

The Urban Education and Black Studies Academic Publishing Partnership Program at Information Age Publishing ( is designed to collaborate with Schools, Colleges and Departments of Education and related educational entities to produce and disseminate high-quality academic books in the field of urban education and Black studies. This program is beneficial in three primary ways for educational organizations: (a) provides an academic publishing outlet with an established academic publisher to disseminate research of stakeholders within the organization; (b) provides a mentorship program for established and emerging scholars in developing high-quality academic books; and (c) provides a dissemination outlet for stakeholders producing cutting-edge research for course adoptions and related events. The Academic Publishing Program will have, at a minimum, the following components to ensure success: (a) commitment from a senior-level administrator to the publishing program as a viable dissemination outlet for stakeholders; (b) commitment from experienced and emerging scholars to produce high-quality books under the guidance of the Director of the Academic Publishing Program at Information Age Publishing and (c) commit to a minimum number of copies for dissemination either through our purchasing program or course adoption.
