Three reasons to choose VU University Press

VU Universtity Press & Uitgeverij Vesuvius


Once the text is ready, your printed book will be available within two months at the Centraal Boekhuis and a month later at Amazon. We don’t have a ‘waiting list’. We work especially fast, thanks in part to a large team of freelancers.

One editor

You will deal with one editor, and just one. This keeps the lines of communication short and clear. Our authors have considerable ‘say’ in decisions about the design and layout, so we create the book together.

Low price

The retail prices of our volumes are relatively low. This can be ascribed to our low overhead and our company philosophy: we are a service-publisher for VU University. But we also welcome authors from elsewhere.
