History

Founded in 1878 with the establishment of the American Journal of Mathematics, Hopkins Press is recognized as one of the world's most accomplished publishers of scholarly journals. Hopkins Press currently publishes 108 peer-reviewed periodicals in the arts and humanities, technology and medicine, higher education, history, political science, and library science. Hopkins Press also manages membership services for scholarly and professional associations and societies. Hopkins Press, in collaboration with the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at the Johns Hopkins University, was instrumental in founding Project MUSE®, a leader in electronic academic and scholarly publishing.

Mission

Our mission is to provide publishing and membership services that add value to the intellectual content created by scholars in a variety of disciplines and to support the associations that play a critical role in advancing academic discourse. We seek publishing opportunities that emulate the academic and cultural values of Johns Hopkins University.  In addition, we are eager to partner with other divisions within the University to fulfill our core mission and to extend the University’s influence beyond its geographical confines.  It is through these efforts that scholarship assumes a larger voice, achieves a wider reach, and realizes a greater impact. We challenge ourselves to always listen to our partners and to provide creative solutions that help them advance and realize their goals.  We achieve this mission through the efforts of our customer service, production, marketing, and digital publishing professionals, who collectively are committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise with the Journals and Associations we serve.

Vision

To honor our commitments to our partners, our patrons and each other, and to embrace innovation and inclusion as we aspire to become the leading journal publisher in the humanities and social sciences, not just in the university press community but also the larger world of scholarly publishing.
