About the Press
History and Mandate
The University of Regina Press (U of R Press) is Saskatchewan's only scholarly publishing house.
Built on the foundation of the former Canadian Plains Research Center Press (CPRC Press), the U of R Press launched on June 1, 2013 and continues to publish books on aboriginal issues, the environment, and other topics, while strengthening its peer review process. A publisher of regional non-fiction trade titles, the U of R Press continues to sell the 230 books from the CPRC Press backlist with the help of its savvy sales and marketing team.
With a goal to enhance scholarship, discover great writers, and see University of Regina Press titles read around the world, it is with real enthusiasm that we launch this new publishing venture.
Since the launch in 2013, the University of Regina Press has published six national bestsellers. The U of R Press is excited to bring you more great writers and new books in the upcoming season.
