At Oxford University Press, we share the values of our society partners because we are part of the scholarly community. Our mission is to ensure that high-quality research is as widely circulated as possible in order to support education, research, and scholarship. To achieve this, we focus on:
- Service to the academic community
- Global dissemination
- Appropriate innovation
- Fair play
Commitment to the academic community
As a university press, we have no shareholders to satisfy. This means that we can devote ourselves entirely to our society partners and work solely on your behalf, returning any profit back to the academic community.
We firmly believe in the concept of fair play and conduct our business to exacting ethical standards. We treat all parties involved in the publishing process—societies, authors, readers, librarians, and other providers—with utmost respect and efficiency.
Expanding access to information
At Oxford University Press, we look beyond the bottom line to the expanding horizon of academic publishing. Our focus on information quality and dissemination reinforces our mission to achieve excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.
