Helsinki University Press, HUP for short, is a scholarly Open Access publisher of peer-reviewed books and journals. All of its publications are freely available online.
We offer the academic community a publication channel through which to disseminate research results effectively, fairly and to the right audience.
HUP’s digital publications are free to download in pdf, epub and Mobi format as well as free to read in our in-browser reader. Books can also be bought in print from retailers for a fee.
We believe that Open Access to research is beneficial for everyone. When the outcomes of publicly funded research are freely available, they can be an asset to other researchers, academic institutions, decision-makers and civic organisations, regardless of their financial standing. This benefits not only the researchers themselves, but also the rest of society.
