University Press of America was an academic imprint of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group that specialized in the publication of scholarly works. Founded in 1975, the press purchased the Rowman & Littlefield publishing house in 1987, and in 1998, it later adopted the Rowman & Littlefield name as its own.[1][2] After this change "University Press of America" became an imprint of the larger Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group.[3]
