The network, trade and development body for the book publishing sector in Scotland.

Publishing Scotland is a registered charity governed by a main Board of Trustees (currently eleven in number).

Our team is based in Edinburgh and works for and with our members to promote publishing in Scotland.

Our latest report, the thirtieth anniversary book to download and catalogues including New Books Scotland 2021.

Publishing Scotland's Publisher and Author Codes of Practice, and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

We are full members of a variety of arts and business organisations from Arts and Business Scotland to Scottish Pen.

Our organisation grew from the work of the SPA formed in 1974 by a group of ten publishers.

In 2019 Publishing Scotland celebrated forty-five years of supporting Scottish publishers.
