Theran Press is an academic imprint run for and by scholars. 

We serve our academic partners - not the other way around. 

We believe in the advancement of scholarship without gatekeepers or middle men.

We believe in fair royalties,  impeccable design, and the highest standards of peer review.

We believe in the future of academic publishing . . . 

For our students, for our communities, and for our world.  




We believe in fair contracts that honor our academic partners and their  scholarship. Corporate publishers taking the lion's share of someone else's work? Never. Highest royalties in the industry? Authors keep their rights? Always.



We believe in unique book design that does credit to our authors and their work. All layouts are always completed in-house and in close collaboration with our authors and editors. Our creatives drive the design process.  Always.


We believe in treating our authors' work like our own. All editing is done in the U.S. or U.K. by our meticulous editorial staff.  Authors oversee the development of their manuscripts at every step. Accuracy, care, and precision? Always.


We believe our authors' research should reach the largest audience possible. Our marketing team specializes in generating unique publicity for academic titles and is committed to promoting each and every title we publish. Always.
