About UOP

Located in Canada’s national capital, the University of Ottawa Press | Les Presses de l’Université d’Ottawa (UOP) is the publishing arm of one of Canada’s leading universities and one of the world’s top bilingual universities. Founded in 1936 as Les Éditions de l’Université d’Ottawa, UOP began publishing in English during the 1940s and today publishes a dozen books in French and another dozen in English each year.

North America’s oldest French-language and only fully bilingual university press developed a publishing program in the social sciences and humanities that promotes critical and ethical thinking, first-class research, intellectual integrity, social responsibility, and innovation. UOP fully supports the open access movement and is committed to the open dissemination of scholarship and research insofar as it is financially viable. Titles are published in print and ebook formats.

UOP’s mission is 1) To enrich intellectual and cultural life through the publication and dissemination of scholarly works; 2) To extend the reach and influence of the University of Ottawa and associate its name with excellence in research and knowledge creation.
