Founded in 1992, the Men’s Studies Press (MSP) was a small independent publisher dedicated to the dissemination and promotion of men’s studies scholars’ work.

Mission Statement
"The Men’s Studies Press is committed to serving the men’s studies community and others by publishing scholarly materials; by creating and publishing timely special materials for unique men’s studies market niches; by responding promptly to all customers’ needs; by treating our internal and external corporate family with respect and fairness; by supporting professionals, teachers, and students who explore men’s lives and/or men’s issues; and, finally, by promoting values that honor and respect all."
