Accessibility Statement of Intent

At Johns Hopkins University Press, we envision a future where knowledge enriches the lives of every person. Contributing to that vision, Hopkins Press has been committed to providing accessible digital content on its Project MUSE platform and is now extending its commitment throughout its other divisions.  Our goal is to be in compliance with current standards and guidelines set forth by the W3C, the IDPF, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the European Accessibility Act.

The Hopkins Press Access Working Group (AWG) is a cross-divisional team tasked with developing digital accessibility strategies that align with our mission to bring the benefits of discovery to the world and support our core values of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access. The AWG is currently developing workflows to publish born-accessible ebooks and to remediate selected backlist ebooks to meet industry standards. Please check back for information on future initiatives.

Hopkins Press ebooks are also available in accessible formats from Bookshare (US) and the Royal National Institute of the Blind (UK). If the title you seek is not available, please contact either organization or Hopkins Press directly at

This work is evolving and ongoing. We welcome your feedback as we continue to work toward ensuring that all people have access to Hopkins Press content. Please send any questions or comments on our accessibility efforts to
