Cambridge University Press dates from 1534 and is part of the University Of Cambridge. We further the university's mission by disseminating knowledge in the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence.
Playing a leading role in today's global market place, we have over 50 offices around the globe, and we distribute our products to nearly every country in the world. We publish titles written by authors in over 100 different countries.
Global - An international tradition
We have long been an innovator in the area of international trade and export. International trade is a vital part of the mission set out for us at our foundation in 1534; nearly 90 per cent of our sales are now made outside the United Kingdom and we distribute our publications in nearly every country in the world. Every book and every journal is the subject of a coordinated international sales, marketing and distribution service.
English is not the only language in which Cambridge publishes; local-language publishing, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, has long been part of our charitable activities, and our publications are widely translated elsewhere.
