Göttingen University Press is the self-contained publishing facility of the Georg August University, Göttingen. We publish documents from scholars who are associated with the Göttingen University. We give assistance to the authors to publish their works electronically and as printed copies. Our aim is to offer free access to as many publications as possible. The Göttingen University Press also seeks to publish reviewed high-quality books that due to their specialised nature will not easily be accepted by commercial publishing houses.
