For Authors

Why choose LUP?
Leiden University Press is a choice for academic quality and worldwide distribution. LUP’s goal is to support and stimulate scholarship by way of academic publications. The quality of the content of the publications is therefore most important. Book proposals and manuscripts are evaluated by scholarly standards, editorial board and external peer review.

Although LUP publishes from Leiden University, the press is active worldwide. Working together with the University of Chicago Press in the USA and with NBN International for the rest of the world, LUP has a marketing and distribution network that reaches the entire international academic market.
