Merchiston Publishing

Edinburgh Napier University's Press, run by our postgraduate Publishing programme

About Us

Welcome to Merchiston Publishing,
the in-house publishing imprint based at Edinburgh Napier University.

Merchiston Publishing is the imprint run by the postgraduate Publishing course based at Edinburgh Napier University.

The publications – print, ebook and online – are managed by staff and powered by students on MSc Publishing.

We publish in two areas, Scottish Classics and Books about Books. We do not accept unsolicited submissions. Find out more by clicking the links below:

1) Scottish Classics

The Scottish Classics series includes three areas of community engagement:

These books are edited, designed, created, published by our MSc Publishing staff and students, and distributed (donated) to schools, hospitals, prisons and other institutional libraries.

The outreach work being done by the students is an excellent way of showcasing 
their talents as well as bringing Scottish literature to the attention of a whole new generation of readers.
–– Michael Russell MSP, as Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning
