About the Press

The Clemson University Digital Press was established in 2000 to exist within the college of Architecture, Arts, and Humanities at Clemson. Its trademark, "CUDP," was established in 2001 and the press has since, in accordance with its mission statement, become a "vehicle for the best scholarly, technological, and pedagogical research on issues that are of concern to AAH, the community, and the state, defining 'research,' ... broadly, as 'what has been built, created, performed, [or] written.'"

The press generally publishes two books per annum, in addition to maintaining its flagship journals, the semiannual South Carolina Review, and the annual Shakespeare journal, The Upstart Crow.

The press also continues to be a vehicle for promotion of university events and colloquia, as well as a host for scholarly publications and materials related to these events.
