Support the Press


Where the Future Leads

Established in 1956, HKU Press has been dedicated to serve the global community with a vibrant publishing program for 68 years. We are now embarking on a journey to 70 years of publishing excellence and we hope you will continue to help make our work possible. The introduction of e-books and Open Access books, the change of reading habits and frequencies, macro environmental developments and library buying behaviours, and the need for software synchronization and hardware upgrades, for example, are all pressing matters that are and will keep challenging the status quo in the field of academic publishing. We strive to maintain our strong presence in Asian studies, Law, Health Sciences, and other disciplines, while innovating and advocating for new book ideas and subject areas, with the common goal of spreading knowledge and wisdom. We hope you will consider enabling our mission-driven publishing work for decades to come!
