Worldwide discovery and dissemination

The University of Chicago Press publishes journals reporting research at the highest levels of scholarly and editorial excellence. Fifteen of our journals were founded more than a century ago and several were the first scholarly publications in their respective fields. The scholarly journals in our portfolio are consistently ranked in the top tier of their discipline, according to their impact factor and other bibliometric ranking measures.

The online editions of our journals are hosted on the JSTOR platform and included in the JSTOR Current Scholarship Program. Your article benefits from state-of-the-art Web discoverability and reference-resolving technologies; indexing by top search engines, aggregators, and abstracting services; user alerting functions such as electronic Tables of Contents alerts and RSS feeds; and a commitment to long-term preservation of content.

Scholarship published in our journals may be made freely available, through Green or Gold Open Access, following the policy of the journal editor or sponsor, or at the discretion of the editor or publisher. For further information, please consult Open Access at Chicago.

Our outreach program to emerging nations, CENI, enables access to our entire list of journals through special programs for higher education and research institutions around the world. By supporting the worldwide community of scholars, CENI seeks to broaden access to knowledge and nourish the intellectual exchange on which it strives.
