From the library community

"Oxford Scholarship Online presents impeccably good content in one of the best platforms for e-books I have come across [...] The ability to add portions of the catalog as funds are available and to expand to additional university presses makes a strong case for OSO and UPSO to be the go-to platform for scholarly monographs on music. Oxford Scholarship Online is well worth a look for academic libraries with music collections."
- Stephen Henry, University of Maryland, March 2018 edition of Notes, the Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association

From our authors

“The great advantage of publishing with Oxford Scholarship Online is the power to reach and interact with this wide audience. We will always need printed books but OSO gives concepts and ideas a ticket to travel far and fast. When we think about the interface of academic thought with political questions, the strength of OSO is that authors can be heard across borders at the click of a button. The platform provides a way for people inside and outside academia to get up close not only with issues that are crucial to twenty-first century life but with the scholarship which interprets the issues.”
- Joshua Hordern, Oxford Scholarship Online author and University Lecturer in Christian Ethics, Oxford University
