Oxford University Press strives to make its websites accessible to the widest possible audience. We try to adopt current best practices and comply to a level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) and to Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act.
This policy statement covers the US version of the Academic and Professional website. Other OUP websites have their own accessibility policies.
We have made the following access work across this site:
1 —Go to the home page
2 —Jump to content (skip navigation)
3 —Go to the mobile view
5 —Go to our Legal Notice
6 —Go to the Site Index
7 —Go to the Accessibility page
8 —Go to our Terms and Conditions
We followed the general principles of usability and universal design. These principles include:
- using cascading style sheets (CSS) to control page layout and to keep the content clean;
- supplying alternate text for images;
- applying HTML tags appropriately;
- presenting additional markup in data tables and forms to help assistive technologies.
We are not always able to live up to these ideals everywhere on our site, and are sometimes limited by the software we use. We are, however, engaged in a continuous process of improvement, and welcome your feedback. If you have difficulty using our site, please contact our Customer Service Department.
