Academic Book Week is an annual, five-day celebration of the diversity, innovation and influence of academic books run by the Booksellers Association.

Academic Book Week returns in 2020, Monday 9 – Friday 13 March. This year’s campaign theme is ‘Academic Books and the Environment’.
“Since its inception, Academic Book Week has become an increasingly important event for campus booksellers. It is our opportunity, each year, to demonstrate engagement with academic authorship and to celebrate academic works which have advanced our understanding of the world. This year’s theme of ‘Academic Books and The Environment’ could not be more relevant and timely and I am excited to see how campus booksellers, academics and students interact with each other in order to curate bookselling events, with the aim of growing awareness of the incredible research and writing UK academics are providing on this subject.”  Will Williams, Head of Academic Sales, Blackwell’s Bookshops
From debates, workshops and seminars to exhibitions and competitions, Academic Book Week aims to open up a dialogue between the makers, providers and readers of academic books, and to increase awareness of the academic book, alerting policy-makers to its importance as part of the intellectual ecosystem of the UK.
