The University of London Press builds on a century of publishing tradition by disseminating distinctive scholarship at the forefront of the humanities. Based at the School of Advanced Study, the press seeks to facilitate collaborative, inclusive, open access, scholar-led interchange, within and beyond the academy.

Manuscripts are referred by the respective institutes, with the University of London Press carrying out a range of bespoke publishing services, including copyediting, typesetting, proofreading, cover design, print management, e-book creation, sales and distribution, and marketing. At present, we publish around 20 books per year but maintain a back catalogue of over 1,000 books available in a range of formats.

History

 

Publishing at the University of London has a long history dating back to the early 20th century. The original University of London Press was founded in 1910, and later, in 1949, the famous Athlone Press was launched. Athlone Press boasted a remarkable and varied publishing program featuring many notable contemporary thinkers, including art historian, Ernst Gombrich; the Liberal archbishop of Canterbury (1904-1988), Michael Ramsey; historian, Sir Stephen Runciman; astrophysicist, Cecilia Payne-Gasposchkin; and socialist campaigner, G.D.H. Cole. In 1979, Athlone Press fell victim to cutbacks and the name was sold off, prompting a backlash in the national media. With the upsurge in university press publishing, the trademark has now been reacquired and brought back into use.
