Liverpool University Press
Liverpool University Press (LUP) is the UK’s third oldest university press, with a distinguished history of publishing exceptional research since 1899, including the work of Nobel prize winners. LUP has rapidly expanded in recent years and now publishes approximately 70 books and 22 journals a year, specialising in literature, modern languages, history and visual culture.
LUP’s mission is to disseminate high quality scholarly research and to promote learning and culture through the publication of books and journals. The Press is a global ambassador for the University of Liverpool, despatching tens of thousands of copies of our publications worldwide each year, all bearing the imprimatur of an internationally-focused, research-led, Russell Group university. It also has a civic mission to support the city of Liverpool through collaboration with regional organisations and as part of the city’s creative economy in its own right.
LUP has been shortlisted for the IPG Academic and Professional Publisher of the Year Award in 2012 and 2013.
