Home > Uncategorized > Co-publication


The practice of two or more publishers publishing the same title at the same time, each in their own territory and under their own imprint. Thus, the book can look as if it has been locally produced when in fact the common practice is for a co-edition to be produced. The publisher who commissions and produces the book is known as the originating publisher, while partners who purchase copies of the co-edition or buy the right to print their own copies are known as co-publishers.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
