About kup

kassel university press GmbH

As a professional university publisher we complete the range of services of our Institutional Repository, since many scholars still prefer, for different reasons, a publication in print. By offering parallel publishing (print and online) we try to increase the acceptance of online publishing among scholars.

Our services range from mere online publishing or publishing in print to parallel publishing. We offer you a long-term storage of your data and affordable publications that can be accessed worldwide. Thereby we aim at fulfilling the scholars’ needs and support you in publishing your researches inexpensively. The Print on Demand method enables us to offer prices that are science friendly in production and selling.


Quality Control

The books published with kassel university press, the publishing house of the University of Kassel, are generally reviewed. The academic quality of the publications is ensured by the cooperation with the institutes and professors of the University of Kassel as well as by the editorship of the publication series. Thus, the review process is subject oriented, and is performed in accordance with the principles of good and fair academic practice as stipulated by the common policy paper of the general Faculty Association (Allgemeiner Fakultätentag, AFT), the faculty associations (Fakultätentage) and of the German Association of University Professors and Lecturers (DHV) of 9 July 2012 (Gemeinsames Positionspapier des Allgemeinen Fakultätentags (AFT), der Fakultätentage und des Deutschen Hochschulverbands (DHV) vom 9.
