Profile

The Press publishes scientific literature as well as more mainstream publications that propagate science and debate. All books share a strong scholarly base.

The foremost task of the Press is to disseminate and make known the results of scientific research at Aarhus University, but the Press is also interested in publishing scientific work from other institutions.

Craftsmanship

Maintening a very high quality in graphic design, cover design, choice of paper, as well as quality of printing, is crucial to the Press. We cherish the importance of good book craftsmanship. The Press was honoured in 2004 and again in 2009 by receiving the "Forening for Boghaandværks Xylograf F. Hendriksens Medalje". In 2014 we received "Den Danske Bogdesignpris" for our series 'Reflections'.
