Alexander Street Press is a publisher of award-winning, online collections for scholarly research, teaching, and learning. Our discipline focus extends across the social sciences and humanities, reaching into the sciences, offering full text, audio and video resources in subject specific collections or as a comprehensive video library.

Alexander Street Press, L.L.C. was founded in May 2000, with the goal of publishing large-scale digital collections of exceptional quality in the humanities and social sciences.

From the beginning, we've built products that contained quality in-copyright and previously unpublished material. We also index each database with our unique Semantic Indexing™, which allows scholars to search and analyze our materials as never before.

Today, Alexander Street Press publishes more than 80 collections totaling many millions of pages, audio tracks, videos, images, and playlists.
