Information for Librarians
With 42 subscription and open-access journals spanning the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, UC Press disseminates innovative research and exceptional scholarship to libraries and scholars around the world.
IP Registry Integration
Access by IP authentication: IP address authentication is an easy way to seamlessly authenticate users requesting access to your subscribed content. Users are given access based on your library IP address(es), eliminating the need for user IDs and passwords when accessing content via the library. Beginning in October 2021, to submit your IP address updates to UC Press you need to submit them via theIPregistry.org. Once approved all IP addresses updates are received from theIPregistry.org via API and automatically updated in our authentication system.
Beginning in May 2020 UC Press migrated all of our journals to a new hosting platform. Learn more.
