Since its inception in 1992, journals have been a strategic component of the UWI Press (UWIP) publishing program. In 2018, the UWIP Journals of the Caribbean (JOC) was expanded to include other academic journals to accelerate the dissemination of current research in the humanities and social sciences in the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa.
The program aims to:
- provide a comprehensive collection of journals featuring current research in and on the Caribbean, Latin America and Africa to complement its award-winning book collection.
- introduce and expand peer reviewed content on sports, environmental studies, creative industries and media studies
- provide production, distribution and marketing support to university faculty and departments, societies and professional associations
- enhance the discoverability of regional journal content globally
