Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Śląskiego) was founded in 1968 as the Publishing Department of the University of Silesia, concurrently with the foundation of the University of Silesia in Katowice. On 1 September 1975 it was transformed into a full fledged publishing house.[1]

The USP journals are made available to the reading public as open access periodicals (the so called "gold path") in accordance with the recommendation of the European Commission of 17 July 2012 on access to and preservation of scientific information.[10] A part of the overall body of the USP publications are habilitationschrifts (i.e. "tenure books") as well as doctoral dissertations recommended by the Ph.D. committees at the University of Silesia in Katowice.

A separate field of the USP publishing activity are coursebooks and teaching materials for students, including students of extramural programs and students of Polish as a foreign language.
