Athabasca University Press

AU Press  has cultivated a strong list of publications in the areas of distance education, labour studies, Métis and Indigenous studies, gender studies, and the environment. We welcome any superior works of scholarship, regardless of subject area. We have a particular interest in often neglected forms of social and cultural history, including oral history and memoir, and in works that experiment with narrative form and/or challenge received wisdom.

Athabasca University Press is Canada’s first open access scholarly press. Founded in 2007 with the principal aim of reducing barriers to knowledge and increasing access to scholarship, AU Press is committed to bringing the work of emerging and established scholars to the public. With both an open access journal and monograph program, we make a substantial contribution to a growing body of academic and literary work that is made available to a global readership at no cost to the reader.

As we embrace new publishing venues and the opportunities they present, we maintain a rigorous process of peer review and a high editorial and production standard for all of our output. We support each project with careful and creative marketing that assures authors of our intention to reach the widest readership possible.
