At OUP we have a clear mission which informs everything we doâ€”to create the highest quality academic and educational resources and services and to make them available across the world. We share the Universityâ€™s uncompromising standards, defining qualities, and belief in the transformative power of education to inspire progress and realize human potential.
We have an incredibly diverse publishing programme, which often surprises people who are expecting a traditional university press offering.
We publish in many countries, in more than 40 languages, and in a variety of formatsâ€“print and digital.
Our products cover an extremely broad academic and educational spectrum, and we aim to make our content available to our users in whichever format suits them best.
We publish for all audiencesâ€“from pre-school to secondary level schoolchildren; students to academics; general readers to researchers; individuals to institutions.
As a department of the University of Oxford our worldwide publishing furthers the University's objectives of excellence in scholarship, research, and education. Our main criteria when evaluating a new title for publication are its quality and whether it supports those aims of furthering education and disseminating knowledge.
