A world leader in academic publishing, we publish over 1,500 new academic and professional books every year across almost the full range of academic subjects.
Our list is unrivalled anywhere in its depth, breadth, and consistent commitment to quality, with rigorous peer review at the core of our publishing processes. Our academic authors come from all five continents and range from junior faculty to Nobel Laureates, and we also publish increasing numbers of medical, legal and engineering professionals.
Scientists from Isaac Newton to Stephen Hawking have published with Cambridge, as have humanists from John Milton to Noam Chomsky. We also publish for major organisations such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the World Trade Organisation and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
We publish research monographs, academic reference, textbooks, books for professionals, and large numbers of paperbacks aimed at graduate students. We also publish a small number of accessible trade books each year aimed at general readers outside the higher educational sector.
Short-run digital printing technology enables us to reprint a single copy on demand allowing many Cambridge publications to remain in print indefinitely. In recent years we have used this technology to revive thousands of works of enduring scholarly value, through our Lazarus programme of paperback revivals and through the Cambridge Library Collection, which includes books first published as far back as 1640.
Nearly all of our new books are available in electronic formats. Our e-publishing team continually breaks new ground by finding innovative ways to increase the circulation of Cambridge content through various electronic outlets. Access to our titles is made through institutional library services, as downloads to PCs and hand-held devices, and through specially selected aggregators.
In 2010 Cambridge Books Online was launched. It offers libraries and institutions access to our eBooks under a number of attractive and flexible models, ensuring the instant dissemination of some of the best academic and scholarly research available anywhere in the world today.
