University Press of Florida

The scholarly publishing arm of the State University System of Florida, the University Press of Florida (UPF) was founded in 1945. UPF has published more than 3,000 volumes to date. One of the largest university presses in the South, UPF has earned a prominent reputation for publishing distinguished works by important global and local voices. UPF is proud to serve the State University System of Florida, its universities, and the diverse communities of our state.

The UPF faculty advisory board, composed of faculty members from each of the 11 universities in the State University System, assesses and approves all books that have passed peer review and are slated for publication, ensuring that the peer review process is thorough.
