University of Chicago Press to Distribute UCL Press

Effective January 1, 2018, the University of Chicago Press will distribute, sell and market UCL Press books in North America.

The publishing imprint of University College London, UCL Press publishes scholarly monographs and textbooks on anthropology, archaeology, history, architecture, environmental studies, popular science and higher education. UCL Press makes its books available for free online, as well as sells print copies through traditional retail channels.

Lara Speicher, publishing manager of UCL Press, commented: "UCL Press is keen to expand its global reach, and making its books available in the U.S. and Canada is a critical component of this plan. Working with a university press such as Chicago and its long-established distribution program representing other university presses and scholarly publishers is the ideal partnership to help us expand our activities in North America."

Chicago marketing director Carol Kasper added: "We believe UCL books will find a good home with our growing group of client presses whose signature is serious non-fiction and scholarship."
