Columbia Scholarship Online

Columbia University Press has now launched Columbia Scholarship Online (CUSO), bringing hundreds of outstanding scholarly works onto the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform.

Founded in 1893, the Press is the fourth-oldest university press in the United States. It seeks to publish outstanding original works by scholars and other intellectuals that contribute to an understanding of global human concern, while also reflecting Columbia University’s role as a key institution in the cultural and intellectual landscape of New York City.

Throughout its history, one of the strengths of Columbia University Press has been the diversity of its list, key titles of which are now available on Columbia Scholarship Online, much to the benefit of the wider UPSO platform. The Press is the 20th press to join UPSO's ever-growing family of prestigious partners, and  launches with 389 academic books across 18 subjects, including Economics and Finance, Philosophy, and Political Science.

To celebrate the launch of Columbia Scholarship Online, we’ve made a selection of chapters from some of the press's key titles freely available for a limited time on a diverse range of subjects - from mankind's possible future on Mars, to the ethical debates around cloning and stem cell research:

The Cinema of James Cameron: Bodies in Heroic Motion

Abominable Science!: Origins of the Yeti, Nessie, and Other Famous Cryptids

The Death of Philosophy: Reference and Self-reference in Contemporary Thought

Mankind Beyond Earth: The History, Science, and Future of Human Space Exploration

Stem Cell Dialogues: A Philosophical and Scientific Inquiry Into Medical Frontiers

The Hillary Doctrine: Sex and American Foreign Policy






 All these titles, and many more, are just a click away. Start browsing Columbia Scholarship Online today, and recommend CUSO to your librarian to get access to the site.
