U of Chicago Press dissociates itself from PRISM

Jennifer Howard's article on PRISM from the September 11 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education (blogged here the same day) has been updated for the September 21 issue.  From the update:

Other [AAP] members share...[the] displeasure [of James Jordan, Director of Columbia University Press]. Nawin Gupta, who is journals manager of the [University of] Chicago press and a member of the [AAP/PSP Executive] council [which launched PRISM], said his press "does not support or endorse the spin that is being put at the Prism site." He also questioned "whether Prism really reflects the overall membership of the PSP in any way."
