University of California Press is one of the most forward-thinking scholarly publishers, committed to influencing public discourse and challenging the status quo. At a time of dramatic change for scholarship and publishing, we collaborate with faculty, librarians, authors, and students to stay ahead of today's knowledge demands and shape the future of publishing.
Established in 1893 as a modest publisher of monographs by University of California faculty, UC Press emerged as a world-class university press in the early 1950s. Today we are one of the six largest university publishers in the United States, and the only one associated with a public institution, publishing approximately 200 books and over 40 multi-issue journals annually. As the nonprofit publishing arm of the University of California system, UC Press functions as a unit of the Office of the President and is not associated with any one campus. In disseminating scholarship of enduring value to diverse audiences, we support the UC mandates for research, teaching, and public service. Since 2014, UC Press has been located in Oakland, CA.
