This is the second largest academic press in Canada after the University of Toronto Press. It was founded as McGill University Press in 1960 as the only English-language scholarly press east of Toronto. In 1969, Queen's accepted an invitation to become a partner and share costs.
The press was on the verge of financial collapse in 1980, but survived by moving faculty members into editorial positions and temporarily reducing its size. It has increased its output since then from about half a dozen new titles a year to more than 80. Most of the Press's business arrangements are handled at McGill, but editorial decisions are made jointly at Queen's and McGill.
