“I find the service from the UWP to be unparalleled. I love how the journal production is impeccable. The production staff exceeds my expectations regularly even though I’ve been in this business 20 years. The customer service never disappoints—from questions about author billing to last-minute questions from authors about late corrections. I find that the leadership of the press is not afraid of the challenges facing publishing today. They are willing to try new things. Most importantly, they are always striving to execute the vision of the true stakeholders of the journal.”

—Lisa Al-Amoodi, Managing Editor, The Journal of Human Resources
