Logo of the Association of American University Presses.Medieval Institute Publications assumed its present structure in 1978 as the publishing arm of the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University, and became a member of the Association of American University Presses in 2011.

Medieval Institute Publications, with its partners Arc Humanities Press and Amsterdam University Press, has an ambitious publication program in premodern interdisciplinary studies. Our combined expertise lies in acquisitions, supporting scholars through the writing and submission process and in the prepress (copyediting to typesetting) phases. Medieval Institute Publications publishes using the latest digital printing technologies in multiple continents.

Medieval Institute Publications, Arc and AUP all actively support Open Access publishing (Gold, Delayed or Green). Please see our Open Access website (ScholarWorks at Western Michigan University).


Since 2015, Medieval Institute Publications has been working at Kalamazoo with Arc Humanities Press which publishes scholarly research across premodern interdisciplinary studies and cutting-edge work that links research into the past with today's world.

Promotion, sales and fulfillment is undertaken by Medieval Institute Publications's expert partners: ISD for Canada, Mexico, and the USA; and Amsterdam University Press for the UK and Europe, and assisted by its global agents in the rest of the world.
