University of Roehampton, Fincham Building, Roehampton Lane
Fincham Press is a micropublisher at the University of Roehampton, London, part of a new wave of university presses in the UK. It is conceived, commissioned, edited, and published by a team based at the School of Humanities, and features as a case study in the School’s MA Publishing degree programme.
An early goal was to give our students direct experience of a professional publishing process, from commissioning to promotion, in the form of an annual anthology. In 2017 Fincham Press expanded into open access journal publishing and in 2018 it added its first academic title.
The Press is looking at ideas for future growth appropriate for this particular sector, which would help us explore innovative approaches to publishing and dissemination of research, and offer our students new channels for expression and learning.
