University of California Press celebrates 125th anniversary
February 16, 2018, marked the quasquicentennial of University of California Press, celebrating 125 years of scholarly publishing since its founding in 1893. To celebrate this milestone anniversary, UC Press will launch “Voices Revived,” a new cross-disciplinary series that brings field-defining, out-of-print books back into print.
Throughout its history, UC Press has remained one of the most forward-thinking publishers in the world, collaborating with scholars, librarians and authors to publish high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship. Today, UC Press continues to serve as the nonprofit publisher of the University of California system, publishing 200 books and 30 multi-issue journals each year, and maintaining 4,000 book titles in print.
As UC Press celebrates, it also welcomes Tim Sullivan as its next executive director. Sullivan, previously editorial director of Harvard Business Review Press, brings to UC Press extensive knowledge in and experience with publishing in general, and university press publishing in particular.
