The University of Akron Press seeks to acquire innovative content that advances scholarship. These materials can be in traditional or digital formats. We especially are interested in works that are interdisciplinary in nature, shed light on new areas of research, and apply findings to real-world problems. We look for titles within the following areas: law, organizational studies, politics, psychology, sustainability, and technology, including polymer science.
As a regional publisher, we are interested in titles about Ohio history and culture in the broadest sense.
We also publish two books of poetry annually, one of which is the winner of the Akron Poetry Prize. We will consider literary collections based around one theme, especially collections of translated works. Poetry collections by a single author must be submitted to the Akron Poetry Prize for consideration. See guidelines here.
