About the Press

Unisa Press welcomes your manuscript of high scholarly excellence and originality. We function within a classic university press model:

  • The Senate Publications Committee (SPC) oversees the quality assurance of publications and meets five times per year to consider manuscripts.
  • Unisa Press publishes independent scholarly and academic books as well as broader general interest original works. 
  • Unisa Press offers guidelines for the conversion of PhDs into books.
  • Unisa Press also publishes academic journals.

Linked to our Research and Innovation Portfolio, Unisa Press publishes within five focal areas, and on issues eliciting global discussion:

  • knowledge generation and human capital development linked with the needs of South Africa and our continent;
  • the promotion of democracy, human rights and responsible citizenship;
  • innovation and capacity building in science and technology;
  • economic and environmental sustainability;
  • open distance learning.
