A change in Melbourne University Publishing’s editorial policy has prompted the resignation of long-serving CEO Louise Adler and five independent directors of the venerable publishing house. The University of Melbourne’s vice-­chancellor Duncan Maskell has ordered MUP to exit trade publishing and focus exclusively on academic publishing. Several of the directors who resigned have questioned whether MUP will be viable under its new business model, noting the limited market in Australia for academic works.
