Stature in the Market


Cambridge is the oldest publisher and printing house in the world and has remained in continuous business in the international academic market since publishing its first book in 1584. The Press occupies a unique position in the academic journals market, remaining small enough to offer personal and dedicated service, whilst offering global reach and world-class service levels.

As the Press has no shareholders, Cambridge reinvests all profits into its academic publishing programme and back to our society partners. Unlike the commercial publishing houses, which operate in the same market, there is no continual threat of mergers or acquisitions. We therefore offer society partners the most stable publishing partnership available.

As an ethical and forward-thinking publisher operating world-wide, Cambridge grants access to our online journals package to developing nations through participation in the HINARI, Commonwealth Universities Project, AGORA, and OARE initiatives .
