Canadian Scholars Books provides a unique and independent voice for a wide range of academic and political perspectives that may not be heard within a large multinational or university press. We create books that make a genuine and lasting contribution to the evolution of a wide variety of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. A rigorous peer review process is fundamental to our editorial policy and is one of the key factors in the prestige associated with our company’s name.
Women’s Press, founded in 1972, has played an integral role in the proliferation of feminist writing in Canada. Our press is committed to conserving a space in higher education devoted to gender, sexuality, and women’s studies. We pride ourselves on the quality of our authors and our contributions to the field of feminist scholarship.
Environmental, economic, and social sustainability are important values at Canadian Scholars. We are committed to minimizing paper, ink, and impact on the environment. This includes using electronic exam copies and electronic proofs; printing only the books we need on demand; and printing most of our books and coursepacks on paper that is in accordance with current environmental standards prescribed by the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). CSPI is also committed to meeting our current economic and social needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Praise for Canadian Scholars
"Canadian Scholars has always been a friend to me. A solid publication record with titles both informative and provocative has made it easy to adopt Canadian Scholars books for courses over the years. Better still, Canadian Scholars is small enough to provide prompt and courteous service when book orders or desk copies need to be rushed through by ‘yesterday.’ Best of all, I’ve enjoyed dealing with sales associates and book representatives who have proven unfailingly helpful and friendly."
—Augie Fleras, Department of Sociology and Legal Studies, University of Waterloo
"I've been thrilled with the service and products at Canadian Scholars—they've become indispensable to my teaching. The coursepacks themselves are beautiful—text is cleaned up, paginated, and the end result is very professional. Scholars Coursepack is also extremely efficient, turning around my orders within just a few days."
—Ilya Parkins, Gender and Women’s Studies, University of British Columbia (Okanagan)
