The APUS ePress is an electronic academic publisher providing high quality open access, low cost, and specialty digital materials for online classroom and scholarly use.
Unlike the traditional university press, the APUS ePress is a digital publisher designed to leverage public and proprietary texts while reducing textbook costs for students. In this way, the APUS ePress is focused on producing quality texts in a number of formats so that readers can conveniently and economically access these materials. We do this by offering alternative publishing options such as through open access efforts.
The APUS ePress mission is to work with faculty and librarians to create high-quality, affordable, and innovative digital-first textbooks, monographs, and journals. We enhance the academic quality and reputation of the university as well as provide a platform for faculty and student authors who seek publishing opportunities.
Visit the How to Submit section of our website for detailed instructions on sending proposals and inquiries and one of our editors will be happy to speak with you about publication opportunities.
The APUS ePress is open to publishing content for all subject areas though we typically focus on the University’s niche programs such as homeland security, intelligence, and transportation.
