About Us

Our Mission

Simon Fraser University Publications is dedicated to publishing texts and textbooks of high production quality and peer reviewed content for use in university courses and for general use in the academic community. Our texts include a wide range of academic publications in Criminology, English Literature, Linguistics, and Kinesiology, including reprints and new editions, and they are competitively priced.


More About Us

SFU Publications has been producing texts since 2006. We have an experienced production team who work with authors to produce professional academic texts for students. We take care of all publication matters including copyright, layout and design, ISBN numbers, the full National Archive Canada application, copyediting, graphics, print and e-distribution plus updating and new editions. All publications are peer reviewed before publication. 

We have one distinct advantage: we can fashion a text that is a seamless fit for specific courses or range of courses. If you have a set of lecture notes that are dedicated to a course and the course is required or given at least once a year, you might wish to use our service. If you already have an ms, do not hesitate.

We are administered by the SFU Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and are able to publish in most of the university disciplines. Our authors are faculty members who hold teaching positions at post secondary academic institutions.
