What We Do at Academic Press Japan

You Need To Know

We are a unique service for textbook authors who wish to self-publish in Japan for the university course market. We take care of all printing, distribution and extra marketing. Yet, the author maintains control, owns copyright, follows his plan. In operation since 2011, we focus especially on authors resident in Japan, currently on faculty with ongoing courses.
