The University of Huddersfield Press was established in 2007, to provide an outlet for publication for University and external authors, to encourage new and aspiring authors to publish in their areas of subject expertise and to raise the profile of University research through the Press publications.
In 2010 the Press was re-established with an editorial board consisting of consisting of key members of staff from CLS, the Research Office, Schools and the University Solicitor. The principles governing the Press are:
All material published is of high quality and peer reviewed
Material should be published Open Access in order to maximise the potential for dissemination to as wide an audience as possible. Publications may also be made available by print-on-demand.
The Press will operate on a cost recovery profit sharing model, with any profits being reinvested into the Press
