Cambridge University Press is proud to publish many of the world's leading journals across a wide range of subject areas in the humanities, social sciences and STM fields. We currently publish more than 360 peer-reviewed academic journals.
The Press's engagement with journal publishing began through printing arrangements formed with learned societies in the 1870s. We launched our first journal, The Journal of Hygiene, in 1901 (still published today as Epidemiology and Infection). Nearly 150 years of experience in journal publishing stands behind us, serving an ever expanding and diversifying audience of scholars.
As well as being committed to the highest possible quality in our publications, we are equally committed to the level of service that we provide to each of our authors.
In line with our commitment to the dissemination of knowledge in all subjects, the Press provides authors with a full range of support for rapid publication of their research to the widest possible audience in our range of journals.
