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.

We are launching 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 intention is to make all our online publications genuinely open-access (free to read), but also to extend this principle to authors: we will not charge them to publish with us, 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.
