About us

Otago University Press’s mission is to publish books of scholarly and cultural significance that enrich our society.

To that end we produce a range of non-fiction books on New Zealand and the Pacific, giving special emphasis to history, natural history, Māori and Pacific, biography/memoir, essays and creative writing, literature and the arts.

Otago University Press also publishes a small amount of poetry as well as the literary journal Landfall, New Zealand's longest-running and leading journal of new writing and art.

We publish 20–22 new titles a year and have a vibrant backlist of about 150 titles.
