Founded in 1970, the Irish University Review publishes essays on all aspects of Irish literature and culture from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first century. It produces an annual Special Issue which focuses either on the work of a particular author or on key topics such as Hiberno-English, the Long Poem, and the Irish Literary Revival. Although the Irish University Review publishes work on canonical Irish writers such as W.B. Yeats, Brian Friel, James Joyce, and Seamus Heaney, it particularly encourages investigations of neglected or emerging authors and under-examined literary and cultural issues.
Edinburgh University Press is the premier scholarly publisher in Scotland of academic books and journals and one of the leading university presses in the UK. Founded over fifty years ago, Edinburgh University Press became a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Edinburgh in 1992. Books and journals published by the Press carry the imprimatur of one of Britain's oldest and most distinguished centres of learning and enjoy the highest academic standards through the scholarly appraisal of the Press Committee. In 2004, EUP was awarded charitable status. EUP has a significant journal and book publishing programme, with 120 new books and more than 30 journals published each year.
