Melbourne University Publishing (MUP), established in 1922, is Australia’s first university press and one of the oldest and most respected Australian publishing companies. MUP’s vision is to be recognized as the most authoritative scholarly press within Australia and the Asian-Pacific region. Its mission is to publish books in fields aligned with the University’s academic strengths, as well as academic works accessible to a diverse, non-academic audience. MUP seeks also to reflect its place in Victoria, Australia, and South-East Asia.
The quality of the MUP publishing program and the rigour of its selection processes is overseen by the Publisher and an Editorial Advisory Board of esteemed scholars from within and outside of the University of Melbourne.
Through the Miegunyah Press imprint we publish lavishly illustrated landmark books that document the national story, and include a list of award-winning art, photography, historical and biographical titles.
The prestigious and editorially-independent literary journal Meanjin also falls under the MUP umbrella.
