Nestled in the picturesque town of Manipal, the Manipal University Press (MUP) began its journey on 22 November 2011. MUP is a sister institution to Manipal University and is governed by the MAHE trust. From a team of four led by Dr H Vinod Bhat, the Vice Chancellor of Manipal University, MUP has journeyed over the four years to have on its team - designers, editors and copy editors and a marketing division. By far MUP has brought out over 60 publications including books and journals in less than five years.

MUP was started with an idea to reach people across different sections of the society and the idea continues to drive the publishing of material that can reach the masses. On one hand, it brings out the best of academic books in different disciplines like medicine, engineering, management, philosophy, humanities and social science and on the other brings out low-price health education booklets under its popular science series. Several journals are being brought out and many more are planned by the Journals Division. Apart from these, a few fictions, biographies and translations are brought out as well. A new MUP Series on Indian Literature in Translation is being launched very soon.

Here at MUP, emphasis is on the quality of both the content and the presentation. Content quality is assured by a meticulously laid out editing procedure and the presentation quality is assured by a very fine and top class design and production division.

Alongside publishing of books and journals, MUP offers editorial services and design and production services in publishing materials ranging from journals to annual reports, conference proceedings to prospectus and more.

MUP organises workshops to train copyeditors. Those interested in editing can perform the task sitting at their homes and be empowered as free-lance copy editors.
