Oxford University Press
The History of Oxford University Press
The two main offices of OUP USA are located in the heart of New York City and in Cary, North Carolina, which is located in the Research Triangle. OUP USA is a not-for-profit corporation, our mission being to publish works that further Oxford University’s objectives, including its objectives of excellence in research, scholarship, and education. Thus aspiring to the same goals as the University, excellence, authority, and innovation are the cornerstones of our publishing philosophy. Our operations are overseen by a Board of Trustees and all of our publications are vetted by our own Delegates, who are leading scholars appointed from top U.S. institutions. In pursuit of our mission, we maintain an active scholarly publishing program, producing approximately 250 scholarly research monographs each year, as well as trade, textbooks, and professional titles. We have 8,400 books in print and we stock another 7,600 imports from OUP offices around the world. As mentioned above, OUP USA’s books garner numerous awards each year from academic and professional societies.
