Founded in 2001 and launched as the University of Chester Press in 2011, the aim is to disseminate excellent original research, professional practice and creative work associated with the University, together with publications with a significant relationship to the history, life and culture of Cheshire and the wider region.

Managed by an Editorial Board and supported by a critical peer review process, the University of Chester Press seeks to ensure that the University’s core value of excellence in learning, teaching, research and innovation is evident throughout its list of publications. The Press aims to provide authors with a cost-effective means of publishing their research, together with a personal approach. Prospective authors and editors are welcome to read the Advice for potential authors and editors for more information on the approval process and then to contact the Managing Editor. If you would like to proceed, please note that we ask all prospective authors and editors to read the Guidance and then complete the proposal form with as much detail as possible. This, together with a sample chapter, will form the first part in the approval process.
