Welcome to our author section

NIAS Press is an international, academic press based at the Nordic Institute for Asian Studies, which itself is part of the University of Copenhagen.

We publish books (mainly monographs, but also some edited volumes) in all fields of Asian Studies, focusing mainly on the social sciences and history, particularly research dealing with contemporary East and Southeast Asia. For more details, see our profile page.

Many established scholars have published with us, and we pride ourselves on the large number of young post-docs that we have helped to get their first major work into print.

We warmly welcome your book proposal!
