The mission of the Johns Hopkins University Press is to excel in the selection, preparation, and innovative dissemination of works that advance teaching and research and enlighten a diverse audience of readers. The Press also seeks to sustain itself financially. Today, the JHU Press is one of the world’s largest university presses, publishing 80 scholarly journals and nearly 200 new books each year. Award-winning lists in history, science, literary studies, political science, and medicine reach a worldwide audience of scholars, students, and discerning readers. General interest books, such as the acclaimed Johns Hopkins Press Health Books, help fulfill Gilman’s mandate to broadly disseminate the expertise of leading scholars, scientists, and physicians.
