Journals: About Us

History & Mission

Since its establishment in 1947, the University of Hawai‘i Press has been dedicated to publishing books and journals of exceptional merit. The Press launched with the quarterly, Pacific Science, followed shortly by quarterly Philosophy East and West. Both journals are still in print 70 years later, and today the Press publishes journals in a range of subject areas covering the humanities and social sciences. All journals are selective, rigorously edited and peer-reviewed by well-known scholars in their respective fields.
