Meet the Member: Princeton University Press
Blog cover
Posted by IPG

1 What's your company called?

Princeton University Press.

2 What do you publish?

We commission and publish books across the social sciences, sciences and humanities, from literature to physics, from classics to cognitive science.

3 What's the story of the company?

Princeton University Press was set up in 1905 in Princeton, New Jersey. The European office was established in Woodstock in Oxfordshire in 1999 and we have been here ever since. The office was originally comprised of three people, but we have now grown to 12 and will expand further over the next year. The European office is primarily focused on commissioning, publicity and international rights.

4 How's business?

Good. We are seeing significant year on year growth in all sectors across Europe and working hard to raise our profile amongst readers, reviewers and of course booksellers.

5 What do you enjoy about being independent?

The ability to be agile, adaptable and occasionally take risks.

6 What do you think is the biggest single issue in publishing right now?

Protecting and developing IP. And quite possibly Brexit, but it is hard to tell right now.

7 What one piece of advice would you give to a fellow independent just starting out?

Keep your nerve!

8 What do you get out of belonging to the IPG?

The chance to learn about and discuss other people’s views and experiences of the key issues facing publishers in a rapidly changing environment.
