Ewha Womans University Press

The Ewha Womans University Press (EUP), Korea’s first university press, was founded in 1949. Its mission has been the advancement of academic circles and to contribute to cultural enrichment in Korean society by publishing prominent academic writings by local and foreign scholars as well as insightful books for university students.

The EUP has recognized its strong and impactful developmental power with the "Ewha Library Series”, designed to enhance quasi-academic level cultural knowledge, the "Korean Culture Series" and "Books Opening Tomorrow", well-focused on current trends, and “A Cookbook for My Daughter-in-law”, which has been a remarkable success. Furthermore, an extensive variety of books in five specialized disciplines including childcare, disability studies, gender psychology, women's studies and religious cultural studies, have been published. The EUP has firmly established itself as one of Korea's most prestigious university presses in terms of both the scope and quality of its publications.

In the early 2000s, a new, independent accounting system was adopted and the EUP further expanded its innovation through the following businesses: publishing English titles with globalization as a keyword, such as "The Spirit of Korean Cultural Roots," conducting textbook development and research support projects to promote faculty members’ publications, and establishing family brands including Geulbit (Splendor of Writing, a brand for literary works) and Epress (a brand for language learning resources). In 2016, it was renamed to Ewha Womans University Press and Culture Institute, which marked a new milestone, signifying the pursuit of continuous innovation and advancement in the light of a future-oriented perspective.
