History

The Johns Hopkins University Press was established in 1878 as the Publication Agency of Johns Hopkins University by the University's first president Daniel Coit Gilman. In 1891, it was renamed the Johns Hopkins Press and was given its current name in 1972. To date the Press has published more than 6,000 titles and currently publishes 65 scholarly periodicals and approximately than 200 new books each year.

Since 1993, the Johns Hopkins University Press has run Project MUSE, a large online digital archive of articles from scholarly journals. The Press also houses Hopkins Fulfilment Services (HFS), which handles distribution for many university presses.

Taken together, the four divisions of the Press (Journals, Muse, Books and HFS) make it the largest of America's university presses with a staff of 130.
