Small is beautiful…
NIAS Press is not a giant publishing juggernaut but our size means that we can offer our authors truly personalized treatment. We also have the nimbleness rarely found at larger presses which enables us to make and implement decisions quickly.
…when big friends help
While we manage our European home market ourselves, and our books are marketed in the rest of the world by local experts such as the University of Hawai‘i Press, ISEAS and Silkworm Books (see Global Network in this website for more details). Such relationships mean books from NIAS Press are available from local sources everywhere in the world.
All NIAS Press books undergo thorough peer review and receive our very thorough and acclaimed editorial treatment. As a university-based press, we can take on projects commercial publishers might shun, without compromising on the quality of the end product in terms of editorial input and production quality
Maximizing your audience
We work closely with authors to identify those journals most appropriate to review our books. Many of our titles are submitted for academic awards and book prizes (sometimes with happy results), and we display our books at a wide range of academic conferences.
Value for money
Unlike many other publishers, we often publish our books both in paperback and in hardback at reasonable prices. We also aim to keep every book in print indefinitely. And although this means we are generally unable to offer our authors a huge royalty payout, we do always give our authors a generous number of free copies and allow them to purchase NIAS Press books at a substantial discount.
