  • Created from existing lists and desk research, then followed up by contacting publishers to verify details, this Directory lists book and journal publishers on the island of Ireland and should prove a useful resource for authors, publishers, funders, researchers, etc.

    It provides us with the first set of information to map the current landscape of publishing on the island of Ireland.

    On Bloomsday (16 June) 2023, the Directory was made available to search online and for download in spreadsheet format.

    Both formats of the Directory are openly accessible and licensed for re-use under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial Sharealike (CC-BY-NC-SAlicence
