The University of Ljubljana Press (ULP) has a long tradition of publishing scientific and professional publications, university and language textbooks. Since 2019, the publishing activities of all 26 faculties and academies of the University of Ljubljana have been combined into one organisational unit called University of Ljubljana Press, whose activities support the fundamental mission of the university – the development and dissemination of knowledge that is the subject of cognitive processes and the promotion of critical and creative thinking. Measured by the number of publications (over 200 per year), University of Ljubljana Press is one of the largest publishers of academic literature in Central Europe and has for some time been the largest in Slovenia.

Most of our publications are available in our online bookshop.

In the spirit of open science, we have published web portals University of Ljubljana Press Journals and University of Ljubljana E-books. The portals are based on an open source system (Open Monograph Press and Open Journal Systems), book titles and journal articles are freely available in PDF format, some titles are also available in ePub format, which allows reading on smart phones and tablets.

The University of Ljubljana Press acts in the name and on behalf of the University of Ljubljana and enters into legal transactions in accordance with the authorizations of the Rector of the University of Ljubljana. The basis for the activities of ULP is the publishing activity at the UL faculties and academies, therefore the editorial programme of the publishing activity takes place at the individual UL faculty or academy.
