Cambridge Scholars Publishing is an independent, specialist academic publishing house, committed to providing a forward-thinking publishing service that champions original thinking, whilst ensuring we put our authors at the heart of everything we do.

Founded by former lecturers and researchers from the University of Cambridge, we publish original academic work across a wide range of subjects, with a particular focus on The Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

We are unique in the balance we establish between our editorial guidance and the level of control retained by each of our authors; acknowledging the value they place on presenting their own work in a way that retains the integrity of their original argument.

With a strong reputation for author satisfaction, we understand the importance of making the publishing process a rewarding experience, with no cost to the author/editor, complimentary copies, a substantial author discount, free access to our eBook titles, and a generous royalty scheme. Our publications are marketed worldwide and sold through international booksellers and distributors including Amazon, Blackwell, Baker & Taylor, YBP and Ingram, and are widely purchased by academic libraries. In addition, we have distribution partnerships in key geographical territories such as the USA, China, India and the Middle East.

Our international Editorial Advisory Board is chaired by Professor Emeritus David Weir and consists of established scholars and leading-edge thinkers, who play a key role in helping us to steer our commissioning focus.
