For more than 30 years, University Press of America has been transforming the world of academic publishing--to the delight of scholars in the United States and abroad. Where other academic publishers stress a book’s profitability, UPA is committed to the belief that the most important question relevant to the publication decision is: Does this work provide a significant contribution to scholarship?
Since its founding in 1975, UPA has published more than 10,000 academic, scholarly, and biographical titles. UPA publishes significant works in many disciplines.
Intent on delivering high-quality research into the hands of students and faculty in a timely manner, UPA has succeeded in attracting first-rate authors. With innovative publishing programs designed for scholarly monographs as well as classroom texts and text supplements, UPA benefits scholars in all phases of their careers--from junior faculty and emerging scholars to established scholars and professors emeritus.
UPA’s publishing program stresses personal attention, speed of publication, and aggressive marketing and promotion.
