Why Publish with Us

Located on the main campus of the Pennsylvania State University, the Press has been dedicated to the publication of current scholarship through its journals division since the late-1960s. Its journals program serves to disseminate the results of original research in the form of new information, interpretations, or methods of analysis in core fields of the humanities and social sciences.
