Publishing Policy

Over the past years Leuven University Press has remained true to its commitment to disseminate scholarly knowledge and support academic research by publishing monographs, edited volumes, series, textbooks and periodicals.

Leuven University Press is committed to bringing its publications to the attention of a targeted, global audience of readers through an extensive network of representatives and distributors. Findability and availability are key words in its endeavor.

In the USA and Canada all English-language titles are distributed and sold through Cornell University Press. In Europe (excluding the Benelux) Leuven University Press is represented and distributed by NBN International. In the Netherlands, all titles are available via CB. In China our titles are distributed by Inspirees.

In addition to this international network of distributors, booksellers, and library suppliers, Leuven University Press makes use of digital distribution options such as Google and Nielsen BookData to promote and market LUP titles. A number of our recent titles are also available as eBooks on our website and through selected online booksellers and library platforms such as ProQuest Ebook CentralEBSCOhostDawsoneraProject Muse and JSTOR.

All LUP publications are published with care and attention to detail. Prior to publication, all manuscripts are assessed by an independent editorial board and external specialist readers to ensure the highest academic standards. Combined with a service-oriented and personal approach this peer review process defines our publishing policy. 

You can find more information on our peer review process and editorial board in the menu 'For authors'.
