The University of Nebraska Press promotes, publishes, and disseminates works of intellectual and cultural significance and enduring value. They primarily publish nonfiction books and scholarly journals, along with a few titles per season in contemporary and regional prose and poetry. On occasion, they reprint previously published fiction of established reputation, and they have several programs to publish literary works in translation. Through their paperback imprint, Bison Books, they publish reprints of classic books of myriad genres. Their primary mission is to find, evaluate, and publish in the best fashion possible, serious works of nonfiction.
