cademia Press is a fast growing, independent academic publishing house located in Ghent (Belgium). As a subsidiary of J. Story - Scientia Scientific Booksellers, Academia Press is a dedicated and dynamic participant within the academic and professional book market.

Academia Press specializes in the publication of:
  • high-quality academic research;
  • textbooks which didactically transmit research to students;
  • professional and informative publications, in which research is made accessible to specific professional target groups and/or a wider audience;
  • series and journals, in which research is valorized for a specialized academic audience.

Academia Press was established at the end of the 1980s with the explicit aim of developing an independent press according to the model of American and British University Presses. As a subsidiary of J. Story – Scientia Scientific Booksellers, Academia Press has fast become a commercial enterprise. It has, however, remained faithful to its initial mission to function as a gatekeeper, and to serve the academic community by supporting and stimulating scholarship. As a member of the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP), Academia Press remains fully qualified and up to date with regard to recent developments within the domain of academic publishing. We follow the latest issues, trends and relevant publications closely, attend conferences and workshops, and frequent international fairs such as the London Book Fair and the Frankfurter Buchmesse on a regular basis.
