University of London Press

Scholarly publishing at the forefront of the humanities.

University of London Press logo
The University of London Press seeks to facilitate collaborative, inclusive, open access, scholar-led interchange, within and beyond the academy.

The University of London Press was originally founded in 1910, and operated as Athlone Press between 1949 and 1979. It boasted a varied publishing programme featuring notable thinkers of the day. 

Building on this rich publishing tradition, we are proud to relaunch The University of London Press as an inclusive and fully Open-Access publisher in 2019. Based at the School of Advanced Study (SAS), University of London, the press will disseminate distinctive scholarship at the forefront of the humanities. 

“I am delighted that the historic University of London Press name is to be revived and that the University is increasingly publishing open access research,” Professor Wendy Thomson, University of London Vice-Chancellor.

“SAS is a national centre for the promotion and facilitation of work in the humanities and social sciences. Strong publication is central to its mission, so we are delighted by the launch of the University of London Press, especially its commitment to increasing access to excellent work.” Professor Rick Rylance, Dean of the School of Advanced Study.
