Academic Publishing at OUP

Oxford University PressOxford University Press (OUP) is the world's leading university press with the widest global presence. Our academic publishing programme serves scholars, teachers and researchers, publishing important and rigorous research and scholarship across subject areas stretching from History to Life Sciences to Economics.


We further the University of Oxford’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education, by publishing worldwide.


Building blocks with peopleThe Academic Division of OUP comprises journals publishing, research and reference publishing, Higher Education, and academic dictionaries. We also publish Sheet Music.

We strive to serve the academic community by publishing the best content at scale and increasing the readership of everything we do. As the world of scholarly publishing becomes ever more digital, we make sure that scholars worldwide are able to access our content in the format that best suits them. Whether this is online, an ebook, or in print, our aim is to ensure that every serious research institution in the world has the maximum access to our publications in the simplest, most cost-effective way.


Building blocks and peopleWe want our scholarship and research to be available to as many people as possible.

This is not just about wide digital dissemination. Our publications are translated into over 40 languages and our Developing Countries Initiative ensures that scholars at institutions in less prosperous areas of the world are able to access our content in an affordable way.

OUP is also committed to supporting different business models in the dissemination of our scholarly research. We now publish over 60 fully Open Access journals, alongside a number of Open Access monographs, and offer an Open Access publishing option on almost all of our journals.
