About Us

The mission of Webster University Press is to publish academic works of high quality related to the academic programs offered by Webster University. WUP serves as a vehicle to disseminate scholarly, educational, and creative works that support the University's academic mission.

WUP is an academic initiative under the auspices of Academic Affairs and operates as a unit within Emerson Library. WUP collaborates with co-publishers for all publishing responsibilities associated with producing, marketing, selling, and distributing WUP publications.

Works that support the University's academic mission may be proposed for WUP by University faculty, by members of our academic community, and others. Works accepted by WUP for review are first reviewed by the editorial board, with outside peer-review of all scholarly works and of other works as appropriate.
