From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The McGill-Queen's University Press (MQUP) is a joint venture between McGill University in Montreal, Quebec and Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, two of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Canada.

McGill-Queen's University Press publishes original peer-reviewed works in most areas of the social sciences and humanities. It currently has over 2,800 books in print.[1] For more than twenty years, the publishing house has been under the direction of senior editor Philip Cercone, a former director of Canada's Aid to Scholarly Publishing Programme, the governmental agency that funds a large portion of the books published by MQUP. Under Cercone's guidance, the list has grown to the point where MQUP is generally recognized, along with the University of Toronto Press, as Canada's leading academic publisher. One of its editors is the historian and author Donald Akenson.
