About Sydney University Press

Sydney University Press (SUP) is a not-for-profit, scholarly publisher of research-based books.

Our mission is to support and facilitate the dissemination of outstanding research, and to find new ways to extend the availability and accessibility of knowledge, increasing engagement with individual works.

All SUP book proposals and manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer review process prior to being accepted for publication. All SUP commissioning must be approved by the SUP Editorial Advisory Board, which is composed of academics based at the University of Sydney. 

SUP is overseen by the SUP Advisory Board, chaired by the Provost's nominee. 

Sydney Open Library

Sydney Open Library (SOL) hosts open access academic monographs and textbooks published by Sydney University Press. Our open access books were previously held in the repository at the University of Sydney Library.

As a not-for-profit publisher, SUP takes a hybrid approach to open access, with some books released commercially and others in open access. Most of our open access books are released with the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) licence.
