The Bucharest University Press

The Bucharest University Press was founded in 1993, taking over the inheritance of the previous publishing house (TUB) which already had an extensive list of titles and excellent expertise in the field of academic publishing. The new Press was fitted with more efficient equipment and functioned for a time under the management of a team including a French deputy manager, a specialist in this domain. Obviously, the commercial success of university editions cannot compare with that of bestsellers… Nevertheless, many products of the University Press have been appreciated at national and international events, or have obtained awards of the Romanian Academy.

The Press currently publishes around 120 titles per year, equivalent to the output of a medium-sized national publishing house, but its total print run is only 30,000 copies, as its publications are mainly directed towards a limited readership of students and specialists.

The University Press offers a number of collections:

  • FUNDAMENTUM – general themes considered to be the foundation of specialist knowledge
  • PHILOLOGICA BUCURESTIENSIA – high-level works of research, with foreign referees
  • TIMPUL PREZENT – studies of politics and contemporary history.
A collaboration with the ‘Nicolae Iorga’ programme will facilitate the publication of important translations from French.
