Oxford University Press (OUP) is a department of the University of Oxford and it is the world's largest university press, publishing over 4,000 new titles a year. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of OUP, OUP China-Hong Kong has achieved a leading position in the local educational publishing market.
In Hong Kong itself, OUP China is a significant publisher of educational books, at all levels, and both in English and in Chinese. Courses for the teaching of the two languages in primary and secondary schools are widely used; and texts in the sciences and humanities also occupy dominant positions.
For regional and international markets, OUP China publishes English-Chinese dictionaries and a broad range of college, academic and general titles about and for China, again both in English and in Chinese.
OUP China-Hong Kong first introduced humanities books in 1992, which marked a key milestone of success and expanded their reach to a new group of readers. With the objective of broadening the view of our readers, our humanities books span literature, history, philosophy and sociology, and have included both Chinese books and translated books from renowned authors.
