For over a century, members of ACUP / APUC have been bridging the communities of universities and general readerships, supporting production of and access to high quality Canadian scholarship for the broadest national and international audiences. The first priorities of our members as mission-driven, non-profit scholarly publishers are quality of content and financial sustainability.

The imprint of a university press carries an assurance of quality in the editorial development and review of the scholarship, high production values across a range of formats, distribution through market and non-market mechanisms, and substantive marketing to ensure discoverability across disparate readerships, both within and beyond the academy.
