Qatar University Press (QU Press) adopts the university's objective of publishing various researches and refereed scientific studies. Editing, design, and production of books and scientific journals. In this regard, the company focuses on prestigious publishing of printed and digital books and scientific journals, as well as allowing free access to some of them.

The staff of QU press has shared their opinion on the importance of scientific and literary publication and its role in civilized urbanization.

Prof. Ali A. Alraouf, Professor of Architecture and Urbanism, Research and Development Advisor at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, and the author of the book: Architecture, Urbanism and a City after the Corona Pandemic, which will be published by Qatar University Press 2022 said,
“Creating an atmosphere of creativity, invention, independence, and critical culture, as well as encouraging research ideas and constructing perspectives and visions, is all part of producing knowledge. As a result, we were not shocked when we observed development and economic scientists agreeing to stress new transformations in the dominant economic conceptions, as well as the move from rentier to agricultural and industrial economies. The present era is marked by countries and nations that have opted to embrace the ideas of a knowledge and creative economy based on innovation and the production of minds rather than farms and factories. As a result, the prosperity of new countries is based on the balance of creative minds, thinkers, and researchers who develop information.”

Ms. Alreem Aladba, Research Project Manager at QU Press, said: “Scientific research publication is one of the most essential tools for society's development and progress toward civilization. If we look at Qatar University Press in particular, we can observe that it is a fully academic scientific publishing business. It is a non-profit organization in Qatar that aims to support, develop, and publish research in digital and paper formats, and specializes in publishing books and articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals from a variety of disciplines, including social and human sciences, applied sciences, and others. As a result, it complements the other Qatari publishing firms, which are on the rise.”

Mr. Mohamed Bousserghine, Senior Acquisitions Editor at QU Press, highlighted the importance of scientific publishing, whether in refereed journals and periodicals or paper and digital books, in achieving a civilizational leap in the scientific areas, especially when the subjects of knowledge investigated varied and then came up with conclusions and ideas. A contemporary theoretical and applied ideology that results in a qualitative shift in the dynamics of changing societies.

Qatar University Press (QU Press), a nonprofit publishing house established in 2018 by QU, is dedicated to promoting the dissemination of peer-reviewed and research-based publications in fields including social sciences, humanities, STEM, and more. QU Press aims to be a leading publisher of books, journals, and scholarly monographs that advance knowledge and influence policy. It equally endeavors to support QU’s vision towards research and education excellence in Qatar and the region.
