Carano Pustaka Universitas Andalas (CPUA) is an open press dedicated to open access book publications authored, edited and published by staff members of Universitas Andalas, Padang, West Sumatra, Indonesia.

It is mainly targeted at ebooks, rather than printed ones. ISBN or ISSN for the electronic medium is produced for the books published with CPUA. The system itself is maintained by The Central Library of Universitas Andalas and Lembaga Pengembangan Teknologi Informasi dan Komunikasi (LPTIK) at Universitas Andalas.

We also welcome authors who are not Universitas Andalas' staff members to submit their manuscripts. A small publication processing charge will be applied for labor work in typesetting and layout.
