Covid-19: A message to our customers
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is posing huge challenges for teachers, researchers and learners. At Cambridge University Press we are committed to supporting you at this difficult time.
We are providing free access to a growing collection of research related to the coronavirus. The Press plays a global role in education and research and shares its University’s mission to contribute to society through its work. Sharing that research can play an important role in tackling shared threats such as this. Our Gold Open Access journals are waiving Article Processing Charges for all manuscripts describing COVID-19 or coronavirus-related research to the end of August 2020 to ensure the latest research gets the widest possible distribution. Articles in the collection are drawn from journals including Epidemiology & Infection; Prehospital and Disaster Medicine; Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, and from Animal Health Research Reviews, among others. You can also visit Cambridge Reflections, a series of short essays and opinion pieces written by Cambridge authors in response to the crisis.
English Language Teaching
We have launched a campaign – Supporting Every Teacher - and in partnership with colleagues at Cambridge Assessment English, we are producing large amounts of free, online content for teachers and learners. Hosted on our World of Better Learning blog, this supports teachers whose schools have been closed with daily text, audio and video content focussed on different aspects of online teaching. We are making this content available to the maximum number of people possible and have also compiled available online content into free-to-use bundles for different user groups in support of online courses. We have also produced guides on how to use printed materials in a virtual classroom setting. Our Cambridge Exam Boosters series has also been digitised and made freely available. Support is also available from colleagues who are in touch with schools to provide help and guidance on moving to or using online and blended print and digital products.
Educational resources for schools
We’re supporting teaching and learning from home with a range of resources for free around the world. You can access almost all of our digital material until September, as well as finding links to primary worksheets, webinars, videos and tips from our blog. We are also offering support for when you return to the classroom, based on identifying and addressing learning gaps, measuring progress, and general teaching advice. This includes past papers, baseline assessments, teaching guides and much more. For the most up-to-date assessment information for schools please visit the relevant website pages for Cambridge Assessment International Education, the Centre for Evaluation & Monitoring (CEM), OCR, AQA and the International Baccalaureate.
Rest assured that we are doing all we can to support you, with robust plans in place to maintain services to our global communities of teachers, learners, researchers and institutions. Our business continuity teams are meeting regularly to assess the situation and we are working closely with our suppliers to continue with business as usual.
