Who we are
What we do
The University of Michigan Press’s academic publishing program boasts all the virtues of traditional not-for-profit scholarly publishing: commitment to selectivity, integrity of vetting processes, and a rigorous approach to sustainability.
The integrity of our publishing program at Michigan rests on our rigorous peer review process, guided by the informed judgement of our acquisitions editors.
We never make decisions to publish or offer a contract based on purely market-driven factors or the availability of subvention funds. We are particularly wary of contributing to the inequalities that divide well-resourced institutions of higher education from those with fewer resources. It is the goal of our publishing program to serve the needs of talented scholars wherever they do their research and teaching.
What we're working on
The University of Michigan Press publishes scholarly works in humanities and social sciences subjects. We are particularly well known for political science and international relations, disability studies, media studies, classical and medieval studies, performing arts, Asian studies, African studies, German studies, and books about the Midwest region of the United States.
