Stanford University Press has a long tradition of excellence in publishing in the humanities and social sciences. The Stanford University Press imprint was first used in 1895, and is now paired with a range of professional imprints, including: Stanford Business Books; Stanford Law Books; Stanford Economics and Finance; Stanford Security Studies; and Stanford Politics and Policy.

Stanford University Press have been a leader in the adoption of ebook distribution models, and Stanford Scholarship Online (SSO) continues that role with a full range of our disciplines represented. Clear strengths of SSO are history, Latin American studies, and Asian studies. These well-established lists are fully represented, alongside newer areas of current strength for Stanford, such as Middle East studies, business, sociology, and anthropology.

A new UPSO subdiscipline was launched for Jewish Studies in order to best identify Stanford’s longstanding program in that area. Of note in that module is the series Stanford Studies in Jewish History and Culture, edited by Aron Rodrigue and Steve Zipperstein.

SSO is available through the University Press Scholarship Online platform. Find out more about UPSO, and read our FAQs for troubleshooting guidance on how to use the site.
