Johns Hopkins University Press

Johns Hopkins University Press, founded in 1878, is the oldest continuously running university press in the United States.

Johns Hopkins University Press began as the university’s publication arm, and in its first year began publishing the American Journal of Mathematics, which continues to be published today.

Johns Hopkins University Press has been known by its current title since 1972, and publishes 80 academic journals and almost 200 books a year.

The Natural History of the Chesapeake Bay Region and American Land Classics are among series in Johns Hopkins University Press’ catalogue, along with many titles on Earth sciences, environmental economics, evolution, paleontology and conservation generally. An example of the latter is Larry Anderson’s Benton MacKaye, on the forester and conservationist who helped co-found the Wilderness Society, and who originated the idea of the Appalachian Trail - parts of the 2,000-mile trail are named after him.

Johns Hopkins University was established in 1876 and was America’s first research university.
