Athabasca University Press

Athabasca University Press is Canada’s first open access scholarly press. Founded in 2007 with the principal aim of reducing barriers to knowledge and increasing access to scholarship, AU Press is committed to bringing the work of emerging and established scholars to the public. With both a journal and monograph program, AU Press makes a significant contribution to the growing body of academic and literary work available to a global readership at no cost.

As AU Press embraces new publishing venues and the opportunities they present, it remains committed to a rigorous process of peer review and a high editorial and production standard for all of its output. It also supports each project with careful and creative marketing that assures authors of the press’s intention to ensure that all its published material reaches the widest readership possible.
