No Comments on Publisher Profile: Johns Hopkins University Press 32
The oldest university press in America, the Johns Hopkins University Press was founded in 1878, two years after the founding of the university, and published its first book in 1881. Today, it is one of the world’s largest university presses, its book division publishing nearly 150 new titles each year in history, science, higher education, consumer health, humanities, classics, and public health. In 1995, it launched Project MUSE, which provides online access to journal articles and book chapters from 300 scholarly publishers. The JHU Press became a participating publisher in Doody’s Review Service in 1994 and has sent us over 300 titles since then. Over the past year, we’ve received 22 of their titles and published reviews of eight of them. Doody’s Core Titles 2016 features seven JHU Press titles in six specialty areas, with one selected as an Essential Purchase.
