- The University of Missouri, which announced in May that it would close the University of Missouri Press and replace it with a digital alternative, announced Tuesday that its academic publishing business will remain open.
- The reversal of the May 24 decision will see the press keep its current building and staff while losing plans for a digital restructuring.
- Nine employees have reportedly been asked to stay, though one has already been laid off and others have accepted jobs elsewhere.
