MIT Press

Data Center Description
The MIT Press is the only university press in the United States
whose list is based in science and technology. This does not
mean that science and engineering are all we publish, but it
does mean that we are committed to the edges and frontiers of
the world -- to exploring new fields and new modes of
inquiry. (For a time we described our publishing program as
chasing "The Moving Frontier," but we've moved beyond even
that.) We publish about 200 new books a year and over 40
journals. We are a major publishing presence in fields as
diverse as architecture, social theory, economics, cognitive
science, and computational science, and we have a long-term
commitment to both design excellence and the efficient and
creative use of new technologies. Our goal is to create books
and journals that are challenging, creative, attractive, and yet
affordable to individual readers.
