Founded in 1936, Rutgers University Press publishes nearly 100 titles per year

DANBURY, Conn. —, November 8, 2017 — Westchester Publishing Services is pleased to announce they have entered into a multi-year contract with Rutgers University Press. Under the terms of this agreement, Westchester Publishing Services will provide editorial and composition (typesetting) services for the bulk of the monographs, trade titles, and other books Rutgers University Press publishes each year.

Founded in 1936, Rutgers University Press publishes nearly 100 titles per year.

According to Micah Kleit, Director, Rutgers University Press, “Rutgers University Press is excited to select Westchester Publishing Services to help us expand our editorial and production capacity.
