    About us

    Established in 2014, Cardiff University Press (CardiffUP) is an online Open Access publisher of academic research. It is currently unique in operating the Diamond model of Open Access, where charges are made neither to authors nor to readers (‘free in, free out’) for journal publications. Our bywords are ‘Rigour, Diversity and Relevance’.

    Cardiff University Press has accepted a number of journals and working paper series to date, all of which have international editorial boards that include a connection to Cardiff University. We are now starting to add quality monographs, books, and research outputs with non-traditional formats to our range of online publications. We welcome proposals for new titles, or applications from editors wishing to transfer established publications to Cardiff University Press. If you have a proposal for a journal or other publication, please contact us.


    To develop Cardiff University Press further as a high-impact, pioneering institutional publisher, committed to innovation and excellence in publishing, for the benefit of both academia and the wider external community.


    To publish high-quality original academic research online at minimal or no cost and without making a profit, to ensure that the publications conform to Open Access principles, and to comply with funder and HEFCE mandates through Creative Commons licences.
