The Voltaire Foundation (University of Oxford) and Liverpool University Press have agreed a strategic publishing partnership from 2018.

This includes the development of Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment ONLINE, a digital collection that is now available for purchase with 217 volumes from the 'Studies on Voltaire and the Eighteenth Century' and 'Oxford University Studies in the Enlightenment' series - digitised for the first time.

The remaining content will be added over the next few years, with the aim of having all pre-2018 archive volumes within the print series available by September 2020.
