School of Government Partners with UNC Press

The School of Government has partnered with the University of North Carolina Press’s Office of Scholarly Publishing Services to distribute its publications.

The Press, a nonprofit publisher of both scholarly and general-interest books and journals, has created the Office of Scholarly Publishing Services to collaborate with institutions within the UNC System. This partnership allows the School to take advantage of the expertise, efficiency, and economies of scale of the Press while expanding access to its publications.

School of Government faculty and staff will continue to create new publications and new editions from conception through the design and editing stages until the time they are ready to be printed. At that point, the Press’s expertise will come to the forefront.

Customers will continue to use the School’s website to shop. The only significant change they might experience is that individual invoices or credit card charges will come from Longleaf Services, the Press’s fulfillment partner, rather than from the School. 

Established in 1922, the University of North Carolina Press was the first university press in the South and one of the first in the nation. The Press advances the research, teaching, and public service missions of a great public university by publishing excellent work from leading scholars, writers, and intellectuals and by presenting that work to both academic audiences and general readers. 

Shop the School’s publications online or call 800.848.6224 to order over the phone.
