Publishing Scotland

Who we are

We represent a wide range of publishers and suppliers - both print and digital. The 100+ membership includes major publishers such as HarperCollins, Canongate, Edinburgh University Press, BackPage Press and Witherby as well as the publishing divisions of RCAHMS, the National Galleries of Scotland, sportscotland and the National Museums of Scotland.
Other members are part of the network category and include companies and organisations affiliated to the publishing sector such as the Society of Authors in Scotland, the Booksellers Association, Nielsen Book, agents, designers and freelance editors.
We act as the voice and network for publishing, to develop and promote the work of companies, organisations and individuals in the industry, and to co-ordinate joint initiatives and partnership.
Publishing Scotland grew from the work of the Scottish Publishers Association (SPA), a trade association in existence for nearly 40 years. Representing more than 60 book and journal publishers, the SPA expanded its remit and changed its name in 2007 to reflect the changing nature of publishing.
We are the majority shareholder in a book distribution company, BookSource, based outside Glasgow, which we set up in 1995. We also manage an online bookshop,, which features over 14,000 Scottish-interest titles.
