University of British Columbia Press

UBC Press produces books integral to Canada’s cultural, political, and social fabric and is widely touted as the country’s pre-eminent social science publisher. Established in 1971 and now offering 1,200 titles in print and 65 to 70 new works per year, the Press publishes sophisticated and transformative works by authors whose thought and research push the boundaries of scholarly discourse and make a vital contribution to the democratic exchange of ideas. Skillfully edited and beautifully produced, UBC Press books are for readers with an interest in subjects that include: Canadian history, political science, the environment, Indigenous history and current issues, legal trends, historical geography, and urban planning. Located along the Pacific rim, UBC Press’s editorial scope also encompasses works that document and explore Asian history and contemporary society. In addition to the main scholarly imprint, UBC Press has four additional imprints dedicated to publishing informed and engaging books for audiences beyond academia. RavenSpace is an online media-rich collaborative publishing model that supports co-publishing non-scholars and communities in an open-sourced and accessible environment.
