Acquisition of University of Exeter Press by Intellect Ltd.

Intellect is pleased to announce that we have finalized an agreement for the purchase of the University of Exeter Press (UEP).

The University of Exeter Press is a humanities-based scholarly publisher founded in the 1950s, as part of Exeter University. With a list of over 300 titles, it is internationally recognized for its excellence in humanities publishing.

Simon Baker, who has run UEP for the last twenty years, will remain as Publisher. He says of the purchase: 'The two businesses share a common heritage, that of publishing the best in scholarship and a commitment to publishing it in the best possible way. I am looking forward to seeing the UEP list expand again over the coming years'.

'This is an important move in Intellect's development', says Masoud Yazdani, founder and Chairman of Intellect. 'We have built a strong reputation for publishing in new and emerging subject areas over the past 27 years. However, in order to expand, we need to form partnerships with other like-minded publishers. We have greatly benefited from our distribution partnership with the University of Chicago Press, and feel the partnership with UEP will be just as successful'.
The partnership with UEP will allow Intellect to accept book manuscripts and journal proposals in the full range within Rsearch Exelence Framework (REF) Art and Humanities panel D subjects including, Linguistics, English Language and Literature, Modern languages, Modern and ancient History, Classics, Philosophy, Theology etc.
