The publication of university newspapers was suspended at universities in Japan in 1944. Newspapers were aggregated into the University Press, which was published by the University Press Corporation. At the time, the course of World War II had worsened for Japan, and students had to leave their institutions and mobilize for war. The University Press was published three times a month until the 58th, and final, issue on April 21, 1946. University teachers and graduates who were active participants in various fields wrote articles in the University Press. They were identified by their names and social positions, which were included in the issues. The University Press is a valuable historical source for understanding changes in the world of criticism, before and after the end of World War II, and for insights into the daily life of university students at that time.
