Cambria Press Raises the Bar for Scholarly Publishing

Amherst, NY -- (SBWire) -- 10/01/2011 --Cambria Press, the premier publisher of scholarly monographs continues to attract the world’s leading academics to publish their works with them for reasons that include the high standards of peer review, editorial, marketing, and author support services.

The press differentiates itself by providing a service level to authors that most academics have found lacking in the academic publishing industry. One complaint about the publishing industry that Cambria Press has successfully addressed is the speed of publication. Once a manuscript has passed peer review and is approved for publication, the average time frame for a Cambria title to get published is three months, which is significantly faster than the average time other presses take, which can range anywhere from one to five years.

Cambria Press is a rising star in the challenging publishing industry. Part of the success of the press can be attributed to its focus on establishing long-term, collaborative relationships with its authors and readers, as well as researchers and librarians.

Based in Amherst, New York, Cambria Press focuses on the humanities and social sciences, with a number of books that are grouped in very successful series that are headed by professors noted in their field for their exemplary research.

Another area in which Cambria Press differentiates itself is through the provision of confidential peer review files for the tenure and promotion committees. Many Cambria authors have happily confirmed that their tenure and promotion applications were successful.

The Cambria Press program also benefits readers because the books are not only available in the hardcover library edition but also in the many e-book formats that are growing in popularity, including the iPad, Kindle, Nook, and others.

The impressive quality of the book by Cambria Press is well known, and this is why the press is on the approval plan of the premier book wholesalers. Cambria Press titles thus have worldwide distribution and are also listed on In addition, Cambria books are distributed by Ingram Books, one of the world’s largest book distributors to independent book stores. Cambria Press books continue to earn great reviews from top academic journals and noted scholars as well as winning prestigious awards.
