Over the longer term, we believe the work we've done together will benefit greatly from the global reach and reputation of Oxford University Press. OUP is the largest university press in the world, and has been publishing since 1478. It is a department of the University of Oxford, and in North America, OUP is a not-for-profit publisher. Its mission is to support Oxford University’s objective of excellence in scholarship, research, and education. OUP provides sound scholarship in high-quality textbooks at a reasonable price, something you'll agree is now rare in higher education publishing. The alignment of values, priorities, and publications bodes well for all of us.
