About the Press

The University of London Press is a new publisher of leading research in the humanities in a range of print and online formats. Until 2019 the Press was the publishing division of the School of Advanced Study, University of London, and its staff have extensive experience of producing a range of titles for the School and its institutes.

The move to University of London Press reflects the interests and priorities of an established publisher of research in the humanities, and of the Institute as a History publisher.

University of London Press and the IHR

The principal IHR book series each appear under the University of London Press imprint, with IHR and Press publishing staff working together on each title. IHR series published by the Press from 2019 are: the IHR Conference series, the IHR Shorts, New Historical Perspectives and the VCH Shorts.

University of London Press publishes print, ebook and online formats. Like the IHR, the Press is committed to publishing Open Access, via its OA platform. All titles in the IHR's Conference, Shorts and New Historical Perspectives series appear as Open Access from first publication. In North America, University of London Press titles are distributed by  Chiacgo University Press.
