Quality Reliability Support

For over 500 years, Oxford University Press (OUP), a department of Oxford University, has demonstrated its commitment to furthering the University's objective of excellence in research, scholarship and education by publishing worldwide. Oxford University Press is the world's largest university press publishing over 4000 new titles each year and has a presence in over fifty countries world-wide. The Press is an integral part of the University of Oxford. It is incorporated by royal charter, and governed under the University Statutes by the Delegates of the Press, who are appointed from the academic staff of the University. Oxford University Press has very specific criteria for the types of books that may be published, which necessitate careful monitoring of content and quality.

Since 1957 OUP Japan has had a branch office in Tokyo and has worked in partnership with teaching professionals in Japan to provide educational support services that are second to none. Our bilingual team of representatives and consultants advise teachers on the suitability of all Oxford materials. We are proud to work with the finest authors and educators and by sponsoring speakers to attend conferences and by arranging teacher-training workshops, we bring authors and teachers together to share theories and ideas.

English Language Teaching (ELT) Department

The Press's authority with regard to the English language is unrivaled, and is maintained by ongoing investment in language research and new technology. It is our commitment to the quality of our books that has made us the world's leading publisher of ELT materials. Our professionally qualified, bilingual team of English Language Teaching Consultants is available to advise teachers on the suitability of all Oxford ELT materials as well as to give teacher training seminars and product workshops.
