Cardiff University Press


Cardiff University Press (CardiffUP) is an innovative, online, open-access publisher of academic research, run on a “free-in, free-out” basis, for the benefit of authors and readers.

Established in 2014, this is a joint initiative of Cardiff University Library Service and academics from a number of schools within the University.

Cardiff University Press was launched with peer-reviewed journals only, but our longer-term aim is to bring quality monographs, books and research outputs with alternative, non-traditional formats to an online readership.

Our policy is to make all our online publications genuinely open-access (free to read), but also to extend this principle to authors: we do not charge them for basic publication services, as many commercial academic publishers do.

We are seeking to expand our list of journals, working paper series and conference proceedings, and would welcome proposals for new work. Please visit our contact page to get in touch.

Please note:  Some backfiles of our publications have not yet been uploaded here.  Do check this page from time to time for more content - thank you.
