Our aim is to create the highest quality, knowledge-based products and to enable continuous learning for the global scientific and professional communities.
Imperial College Press was formed in 1995 as a partnership between Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine and World Scientific Publishing. As such, the Press benefits from both the expertise of one of the world's leading academic institutions and the experience of a well established and globally recognised Science, Technical and Medical publishing house. A modern success story, the venture has brought fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the world of academic publishing, with recent triumphs including Let There be Light (Montwill & Breslin), Classical Mechanics 5th ed (Kibble & Berkshire) and Physical Biology (Zewail) written by eminent scientist Ahmed Zewail, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1999.
We are guided in our editorial policy by an Editorial Advisory Board, made up of highly-regarded academics from various fields that come from Imperial College itself, thus strengthening the bond between institution and publishing house. We take working with our authors seriously, and aim to provide the best service possible. Being a small team, right in the heart of London, we can meet with authors and build strong and lasting relationships so that every angle of the publishing process is clear and easy.
Imperial College Press is committed to producing high-quality books in both print and electronic format, embracing advances in modern technology to produce excellent ebooks alongside traditional print books. To ensure maximum relevance to the scientific community, works published by the Press reflect the leading areas of teaching and research at Imperial College, notably Physics, Engineering and the Life Sciences. Within these areas of excellence we already publish many authors from around the globe at other leading institutions such as CalTech, Princeton University, the University of Cambridge and CERN.
As the Press continues to grow, not only through increasing the number of books it publishes, but also by expanding into new media, we aim to enhance our production, marketing, distribution and information systems by investing in the latest publishing technology. We have already started doing this by offering ebooks to institutional libraries including:
- Stanford University, USA
- ETH Zurich, Switzerland
- Monash University, Australia
- Academia Sinica, Taiwan
- Institute for Defense Analyses, USA
- University of Western Australia, Australia
- University of Magdeburg, Germany
- Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
