University of California Press

University of California Press is one of the most forward-thinking scholarly publishers in the nation. For more than 100 years, it has championed work that influences public discourse and challenges the status quo in multiple fields of study. At a time of dramatic change for publishing and scholarship, we collaborate with scholars, librarians, authors, and students to stay ahead of today’s knowledge demands and shape the future of publishing.

Established in 1893, UC Press serves all ten campuses of the University of California, and is a department of the University of California Office of the President. All manuscripts undergo extensive peer-review, which includes outside readings by field experts. The imprint of UC Press is controlled by a faculty editorial committee composed of twenty members of the Academic Senate, which is representative of the ten campuses of the University, and this committee exercises the final acceptance of all books and periodicals published by UC Press.

University of California Press publishes general interest and scholarly books in the broad categories listed with the editors name.
