The Master List of University Presses, Catalogs, and Twitter Links

Most academics love books. Hell, it’s why a lot of us think it’s a good idea to go to grad school in the first place. Some, like me, end up editing or writing books, and even — also like me — go into publishing.

As the obsessive type who loves to make lists and keep track of everything, I put together seasonal (fall, spring) lists of recommended books from university and non-university academic presses based on the seasonal (and sometimes annual) catalogs release by c. 120 presses. Rather than repost the list of university presses I track every season, I centralize here the list of c. 120 presses in additional to those without seasonal/annual catalogs — for a total of c. 185 presses — for anyone looking for this sort of information on their own. I call this the Master List of University Presses.

The Master List of Uni Presses below is presented by region — Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Australia and New Zealand, Canada, Caribbean, Europe (including Russia and the Caucasus), North America, and Non-University (I know, that’s not a region, but whatever) — and organized fully alphabetically (taking into account “The,” “University,” etc.). I’ve formatted the list in tables as follows to provide as much information as quickly possible:

University Press Name and Page HyperlinkTwitter HandleCatalog Type

Re: “Catalog Type” I refer to:

  • Seasonal — the publisher releases catalogs on a seasonal basis (fall, spring, and sometimes summer);
  • Annual — the publisher release one catalog a year;
  • General — the publisher technically doesn’t release a catalog, but maintains a list of current, new, and forthcoming books. Note that some, especially smaller, presses with “general” catalogs do market books seasonally through distribution partners (see, for example, University of Chicago Press’s seasonal catalogs, half of which is usually filled with distributed partners’ books); in cases where I know that a press distributes seasonally with another press, I place an asterisk after the label “General”;
  • Monthly — some publishers release monthly catalogs;
  • None — in a few cases, university presses (especially outside the Anglophone sphere) do not have online catalogs of any sort.

Note that many presses with seasonal and annual catalogs also release topical catalogs based on the key scholarly focuses of their lists.

As an aside, if you also love university press sales, which often provide deep cuts on otherwise expensive books, Philip Allfrey created the University Press Sales Bot on Twitter, based largely on this master list, to curate all tweets from university press Twitter accounts that provide information about sales and discounts.

If you believe a press is missing from my list, please contact me and provide:

  1. The name of the press
  2. A link to the press
  3. A link to the press’s catalog page (or description of catalog type)
  4. A link to the press’s Twitter account, if available
