Our wide range of books include academic monographs, art showpieces, fiction compilations and local history titles. Many of University of Huddersfields Press books can be read open access online for free, as well as ordered in print.
The University of Huddersfield Press was established in 2007 and has grown to become an open access publisher of high quality research. Our authors and editorial boards bring international research expertise and a strong orientation to practice and real-world application to their publications.
The Press is keen to support emerging researchers and foster research communities by providing a platform for developing academic areas. We align our activities with the key tenets and identified strategic priorities of the University of Huddersfield Research Strategy.
By publishing innovative research as open access we aim to improve access to scholarly work for the benefit of all.
The University of Huddersfield Press follows the guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). As such, the Press and affiliated Editors adhere to the COPE Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors and the Code of Conduct for Journal Publishers.
For monographs, the proposal and any draft or final materials are sent for review by appropriate external experts and the internal Press Board. We would normally secure a minimum of three external peer reviews, plus the comments from the Press Board.
Peer review comments are collated and communicated to the author as feedback. The author is then asked to respond to the peer reviews and address any issues or take up or respond to any suggestions which may have been made. Once the peer review process has been concluded satisfactorily the monograph can then be accepted and passed to the Press Manager to begin production.
If you are interested in publishing a book, starting a new journal or transferring an existing journal, please contact us. We will be happy to explain the services that we have to offer and to discuss with you how we may be able to meet your publishing requirements and objectives.
We have no Article Processing Charges (APCs) for our journals, and our Book Processing Charges (BPCs) are always set at highly cost-efficient and significantly lower-than-average levels compared to many other publishers.
We also have experience with supporting research bids, ensuring that wherever possible we aim to divert financial administration away from authors and instead help to access available funding.
