2021-22

Oxford Reading Club goes global

We launched this digital library with hundreds of Graded Reader eBooks specially designed to help learners read their way to better English.

UK Children's Word of the Year

When asked to choose a word they would use when talking about health and wellbeing, children in the UK picked ‘Anxiety’. The accompanying research report, released in partnership with the Children’s Society, highlight the widespread impact of pandemic-related lockdowns and school closures on children.

100,000 open access articles

We achieved an important milestone of publishing 100,000 open access articles, plus 100 fully open access journals, since we began publishing open access content in 2004. As the world’s largest university press publisher of open access content, we believe a more open world should work for everyone.

Dictionary pen

In China, we cooperated with a software solution provider and developed a software development kit (SDK) solution of the Oxford Learners’ English-Chinese dictionary. Our innovative dictionary database solution can be easily adapted to any dictionary pen, so that millions of English learners can use them to build their vocabulary by scanning words and sentences from print, handwriting, or a screen.

Our Education division has expanded to 175 countries and regions around the world.

Tackling Harassment

This online programme aims to support universities and their wider communities as they combat growing harassment and hate on campus. Launched through Epigeum, Tackling Harassment is available in the UK and Australia.

Law Trove & Politics Trove

These online resources for UK universities brought in over £3 million in revenue. In particular, Law Trove—the leading online resource for law students used by 50% of UK universities—gained 4.3 million active views and grew 200% in revenue.

We reached the milestone of 20,000 titles on Oxford Scholarship Online, the digital library of research books published by OUP.

223 million active visits

We had an extraordinary 223 million active visits to journals on the Oxford Academic platform.
