Unisa Press

The Largest university press in South Africa

Unisa Press is the largest university press in South Africa, with the biggest publication list. The Press supports the Research and Innovation Strategy for Unisa through playing a role in effectively promoting accessibility to, and dissemination and development of knowledge and research outputs, as well as playing a role in supporting lifelong learning.

Unisa Press functions within Unisa following a classic university press model, with the university's Senate Publications Committee overseeing the acceptance of publications and the quality of peer review processes. This model requires a delicate balancing act between promoting academic merit and the commercial aims of self-sustainability or cost recovery.
