About USSbriefs

A set of papers written by University Staff and Students, on University Staff and Students, for University Staff and Students.

The USSbriefs project originated from papers by academics on the many dimensions of the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) pensions dispute, written in response to the Universities UK (UUK) proposal of 23 March 2018.

Our primary publishing platform is here at Medium. You can also download the USSbriefs as PDFs here or listen to many of them on SoundCloud. We also have a Podcasts channel, established on 3 June 2018.

We are also on Twitter @USSbriefs and Facebook, and you can find our contact details here.

USSbriefs launched on 3 April 2018. This is our Press Release and this is our Editorial Policy. If you would like to help with distributing USSbriefs, please see our Guidance Document for some ideas.

USSbriefs also began a new project, collaborating with Academics for Pensions Justice, called OpenUPP2018 (Open USS Pension Panel 2018).

All members contribute to USSbriefs as individuals on the basis of their expertise, not as representatives of any particular University and College Union (UCU) branch, committee, or other interest group.
