Edinburgh University Press is Scotland’s premier scholarly publisher of academic books and journals, and one of the leading university presses in the UK. Founded over 50 years ago, Edinburgh University Press publishes around 130 books a year in the humanities and social sciences, and has a portfolio of around 40 academic journals. Because all new books and journals are assessed by the Press Committee – an expert team of scholars from the University of Edinburgh who specialise in the subjects that we publish – they enjoy the highest academic standards. Edinburgh Scholarship Online (ESO) makes available the full text of hundreds of these authoritative titles across a variety of subject areas.

"The unprecedented speed of change in the electronic publishing environment presents both challenges and significant opportunities for publishers. We are delighted to be working with University Press Scholarship Online. They have a great deal of experience of working with a global network of academic institutions, libraries and scholars. This presence will enable Edinburgh to continue to innovate in how we sell our books and journals using a single online platform whilst maintaining our individual branding" - Timothy E. Wright, Chief Executive, Edinburgh University Press Ltd
