SIU Press
Help us celebrate 150 years by making an impact.

Southern Illinois University Press is the nonprofit book-publishing arm of Southern Illinois University. Unlike a commercial publisher, which focuses on publishing for popular audiences, we have a mission to publish works of scholarly, intellectual or creative merit, often for a small audience of specialists or for our regional community.

 

SIU Press has published more than 2,500 books since its inception. Publishing primarily in the humanities and the social sciences, the press has made substantial contributions in a wide range of subject areas.

 

The evolving needs of the publishing and academic communities require continual investment in new technologies and new methodologies of delivery. Your support helps us continue our mission — publishing important works at prices affordable to scholars, students and the general public — while building toward the future of digital content development and delivery.

 

For 60 years, SIU Press has supported SIU’s research mission by making a strong contribution to academic scholarship, providing educational opportunities and disseminating information about our region. Your support will help us continue that tradition.  Please help fund one of our priorities listed below.

 

First Book Fund - The establishment of an endowed scholarship that will be used to cover all or a portion (depending on availability of funds) of the publication costs for first-time authors publishing through the SIU Press.   

SIU Press General Fund:  Funds are used where they are most needed.

SIU Press Theater Fund:  Funds will be used to defray the cost of producing and marketing theater titles.

SIU Press History Fund:  Funds will be used to defray the cost of producing and marketing history titles.

SIU Press Poetry Fund:  Funds will be used to defray the costs of producing and marketing poetry titles

SIU Press Regional Fund:  Funds will be used to defray the costs of producing and marketing regional titles.  

SIU Press Rhetoric/Composition Fund:  Funds will be used to defray the costs of producing rhetoric/composition titles
