    At Oxford University Press, we’re focused on the future. But we remain true to the tradition of excellence that has been our mainstay for more than five centuries.

    Our origins date back to the last “new media” revolution. –That’s right, the one sparked by Johann Gutenberg and his invention of the printing press. Today we still publish lots and lots of books—more than 6,000 each and every year.

    Books, however, are just part of the picture. Oxford is a world leader in digital publishing. We pioneered academic e-publishing with our Oxford Scholarship Online program, which made thousands of works in the humanities and social sciences available in electronic format for the world’s scholars. Oxford Dictionaries Online represents the gold standard in digital reference, and Oxford Bibliographies Online promises to revolutionize the world of scholarly research.

    Our educational publishing divisions are equally forward-looking. In Canada, our Higher Education Division has tripled in size in barely a decade. Each year it publishes more than 60 texts and 150 online learning centres designed for a wide range of undergraduate courses. Our School Division’s Oxford Next Online Shakespeare Project has won plaudits from educators across Canada for bringing the Bard into the 21st century. And our English/Language Training Division is a world leader in print and online resources for English language learners.
