Edinburgh University Press is a scholarly publisher of academic books and journals, based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

History[edit]

Edinburgh University Press was founded in the 1940s and became a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Edinburgh in 1992.[2] Books and journals published by the Press carry the imprimatur of The University of Edinburgh. All proposed publishing projects are appraised and approved by the Press Committee, which consists of academics from the university. Since August 2004, the Press has had Charitable Status.[3]

In November 2013, Edinburgh University Press acquired Dundee University Press for an undisclosed sum, with a stated aim to increase textbook and digital sales, with a particular focus on law.[4][1] Brodies advised Edinburgh University Press on the terms of the acquisition.[5]

Publishing[edit]

Edinburgh University Press publishes a range of research publications, which include scholarly monographs and reference works, as well as materials which are available on-line. The Press also publishes textbooks for students and lecturers.[3] The press publishes around 120 books and 30 journals each year.[6]

Edinburgh University Press publishes mostly in humanities and social sciences.[7][8]

The press is a part of University Publishing Online, the online platform of Cambridge University Press.[9]

Business[edit]

The Trustees normally meet five times a year, and are responsible for the conduct of the Edinburgh University Press.[3]

Edinburgh University Press achieved combined book and journal revenues of over £2.37m for the year ending 31 July 2013, a 7% increase on the previous year.[1] Profit before interest was £197,000, which was marginally down on 2012 due to continued investment in editorial and marketing areas.[1]
