About the Press

UCT Press has a long history of scholarly monograph publishing. We are excited to have become an open access press that will continue our investment in sharing high-quality, original, peer-reviewed research on pressing issues. Open access contributes to social justice by making scholarship more equitable and widely available. 

We invite you to become part of our lively scholarly community. We look forward to receiving your publishing proposals for consideration by the UCT Press Editorial Board.
