Mission

LUP fulfils the academic mission of Leiden University by publishing peer-reviewed books and journals for the international academic community.

LUP publishes, in print and digital form, publications in the humanities, social sciences, and law related to the strong research at Leiden University. As an academic publisher LUP looks to serve a global community with publications both in print and digital form that are relevant to academic, professional and trade markets.

The press supports first-class scholarship whilst maintaining high editorial and  fashion design standard. LUP cooperates for the editing and production of our publications with Leuven University Press.
