Concordia University Press was established in 2016. The Press is an arm’s-length organization of Concordia University. It supports Concordia's commitment to innovation and its desire to transform the individual and strengthen society. An Editorial Board of Concordia faculty is responsible for approving all titles published under the imprint of the Press. Its members also provide guidance and support for acquisitions and help set the Press’s editorial policy. A Board of Directors, composed of Concordia academic administrators and faculty, oversees the Press's operations. Concordia University Press is an affiliate member of the Association of University Presses (AUP).   

The Press acknowledges the generous support of the Birks Family Foundation and Brian and Carolyn Neysmith.

Marketing, Distribution, and Dissemination Partners

The Press has partnered with UBC Press for the sale and distribution of our printed English books in Canada. In the United States, our books are marketed and distributed by the University of Chicago Press's Distribution Center. Our printed French books are distributed by les Presses de l'Université de Montréal and our electronic books in both languages are available, without any restrictions, via several online platforms including JSTOR and Project MUSE

Why Concordia Created a Scholarly Press

Concordia believes in the book and in the democratization of scholarship. In many disciplines the monograph is the primary medium for the transmission and sharing of knowledge. Concordia University Press reaffirms the University’s mission to enrich the world through the dissemination of research.
