HUP publishes academic, peer-reviewed monographs and edited volumes from all fields. All books are freely available online. HUP’s digital publications are free to download in pdf, epub and Mobi format as well as to read for free in our in-browser reader. Print formats can also be bought from retailers for a fee.
Proposals will be judged by the Academic Board of Helsinki University Press. All publications of HUP undergo a rigorous peer review process before the publication decision is made. All books are sent for external peer review to at least two experts selected by HUP.
The HUP review process is double-blind. Each referee receives an anonymous manuscript for review, and the identity of the referees is not revealed to the author(s). Exceptions may be made by mutual prior agreement. Please see our Peer Review Policy for more information.
