The University of Nebraska Press, founded in 1941, is an academic publisher of scholarly and general-interest books. The press is under the auspices of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, the main campus of the University of Nebraska system.


The press publishes approximately 110 new books annually and has more than 2,500 titles in print.[2] It publishes primarily non-fiction books and academic journals, in both print and electronic editions.

The press has particularly strong publishing programs in Native American studies and Western American history. Since 2010, two of the press' books have received the Bancroft Prize. The press also has a highly regarded publishing program in sports.[3]

The press is publisher of the scholarly editions of the works of Willa Cather, including the classics My Antonia and O Pioneers!. Through its trade imprint, Bison Books, the press publishes general-interest works in Western Americana. The press has also been active in reprinting classic books from various genres, including science fiction and fantasy.

In September 2011, the press entered into a collaborative publishing arrangement with the Jewish Publication Society, one of the oldest Jewish publishers in the United States. In April 2013, the press acquired Potomac Books,[4] a publisher specializing in military and diplomatic topics.
