The MUP has been in existence since the 1960s and has published a number of scholarly works including books by, among others, Prof. J.J. Cremona, Prof. J. Aquilina  and Ġ. Cassar Pullicino. More recently it has published a series of documentary sources about medieval times transcribed and edited mainly by Prof. S. Fiorni. In 2007 it published Principles of Maltese Company Law by Prof. A. Muscat, which significantly enriches the scholarly literature on Maltese law, and a collection of poems of the national poet, Dun Karm, in Italian, edited by Prof. O. Friggieri.  

Texts submitted for consideration by the University of Malta's Editorial Board, responsible for MUP are, after due consideration by the Board members, peer reviewed prior to their acceptance for publication or otherwise. Prospective authors who may wish to have their works considered should consult the MUP website and follow the new guidelines on procedure. These include a motivation letter; a description of content; the state of the text; its would-be academic value and interest; a cv including publications by the same author, if any; an author-publisher contract, etc.  

The MUP, chaired by Dr. Jean-Paul Baldacchino, is a small but prestigious operation and in recent years it has been publishing on average, up to four books a year. It now has its own assigned lay-out artists, designers, printers and distributors.
