When Lee & Low Books reprised their groundbreaking Diversity Baseline Survey of the US publishing sector in 2019 (DBS 2.0), the Association of University Presses (AUPresses) recruited more than 30 publishers from among our US membership to help form a wider industry pool. The DBS 2.0 report was published in early 2020 and reflected demographics very similar to the original 2015 DBS. At the Association’s request, Lee & Low Books and survey coauthors Laura M. Jiménez and Betsy Beckert of Boston University’s Wheelock College isolated and analyzed the university press data, representing 926 individual responses out of just over 1500 staff contacted.
