Supporting Ohio University Press
Ohio University Press is the largest university press in Ohio. With more than 1,000 books in print, the Press publishes between 40 and 50 books each year by authors in the United States and around the world. Some of our books have wide appeal as university texts and regional classics, while others make available the results of peer-reviewed and often groundbreaking research in the humanities and social sciences. Many of our most distinguished and attractive books are made possible by support from generous individuals and institutions.
Your gift allows Ohio University Press to:
· publish scholarly works that may not always recover their costs through sales
· make all our books available in a variety of electronic formats
· develop ambitious long-term projects that showcase areas in which Ohio University and the Press are recognized as established or emerging leaders
We welcome inquiries about sponsorship of individual books and series, contributions to our general endowment, and other funding opportunities and partnerships. Contact Gillian Berchowitz, Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-593-1157 with any inquiries about supporting the Press.
