WHAT IS HUP?

Helsinki University Press, HUP for short, is a scholarly Open Access publisher in the process of being established. All of its publications will be 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 will be free to download in pdf or HTML format, and can be bought as e-books or in print for a fee. The first publications will appear in 2018, and we are currently looking for authors, manuscripts and journals.

WHAT DO WE PUBLISH?

HUP publishes academic, peer-reviewed monographs, edited volumes and journals from all fields. The main emphasis is on English-language publications, but we do not rule out other languages either. Manuscripts are selected for publication according to purely scientific criteria.

WHY OPEN ACCESS?

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, scientific institutions, decision-makers and civic organisations, regardless of their financial standing. This creates better starting points for research all around the world, and increases opportunities for finding solutions to global problems.

For researchers, Open Access publishing is a chance to reach a broader audience and to enhance the impact and citation index status of their work.

HUP wants to help the academic community to disseminate research results effectively and professionally. This benefits not only the researchers themselves, but also the rest of society.
