Cornell University Press has now launched Cornell Scholarship Online, bringing hundreds of diverse and high-quality academic works onto the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform.
Established in 1869, Cornell University Press has the distinction of being the first university press to be established in the United States. From that beginning, the Press has grown to be a major scholarly publisher, offering over 100 new titles a year in the humanities and social sciences. Cornell's many books in the life sciences and natural history are published under the Comstock Publishing Associates imprint, and a distinguished list of books in labor and employment relations, the health care professions, and human resources is offered under our ILR Press imprint.
At launch, Cornell Scholarship Online makes over 300 works of scholarship available on the UPSO platform, including books written by prominent authors such as historian Mary Beth Norton, eminent music scholar Elizabeth Eva Leach, anthropologist Ilana Gershon, the historian and classicist Éric Rebillard, and Daniel C. Kurtzer — the former U.S. ambassador to Egypt under Bill Clinton.
