Divisions of UTP


University of Toronto Press is Canada’s leading academic publisher and one of the largest university presses in North America, with particular strengths in the social sciences, humanities, and business. We are a mission-driven publisher widely recognized in Canada for its strength in history, political science, sociology, Indigenous studies, and cultural studies. Internationally, UTP is a leading publisher of medieval, Renaissance, Italian, Iberian, Slavic, and urban studies, as well as studies in book and print culture.

As a not-for-profit university press with the goal of publishing affordable books for undergraduate students, UTP is a first alternative to commercial textbook publishers. Part of our mandate is to publish materials for course use that are pedagogically valuable and that also contribute to ongoing scholarship. The possibilities for rethinking how texts can be used in the classroom, along with new formats for their delivery, are endless, and UTP looks forward to partnering with instructors and scholars in this innovative endeavour.

With the publication of influential authors and award-winning research, as well as a continuing dedication to groundbreaking new scholarship and innovative texts for the higher education market, UTP has firmly established its reputation for excellence. In addition to our scholarly and higher education lists, our imprints include:



Aevo UTP books delve into major issues facing today’s world. Written by leading experts and intended for the intellectually curious, these books tackle a range of topics including the climate crisis, urban development, mental health, and popular science.



New Jewish Press (NJP) books touch on Jewish and Jew-ish topics that are timely and rooted in empathy and inclusivity. These books aim to bring the Jewish community together with strong, smart commentary that demands critical thinking and conversation.



Business books from the University of Toronto Press bridge the gap between research and practice, offering creative tools for navigating today’s complex business environment. Business professionals, students, and anyone interested in staying current with the latest in business thinking will be engaged by these titles, which reflect the Rotman School’s vision for “a new way to think.”



With more than 115 years of publishing experience serving the changing needs of journal editors and scholarly societies, the Journals Division has developed a strong reputation for excellence in journal publishing and for the support we provide to our partners. We work together with journal editors, editorial boards, and society partners to achieve our common goals.

The Journals Division publishes 40+ journals in a variety of disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, and medicine. We are passionate about high-quality content, digital dissemination, and the success of scholarly journals, and are making major strides forward in areas such as online peer review systems and multimedia publishing, such as videos and podcasts.

Our goal is to be a leading journal publisher in North America, serving the North American and international academic community with superior journals, exceptional services, and customer-focused employees. Visit the Journals website for more information.
