University Publishing Activities
The ongoing social and economic reforms in the country increased the requirements for modern University publishing houses, defining for them the role of cultural and creative centers of the third millennium that can improve the efficiency of the educational process and the quality of university publishing.
The University administration has done a great job in order to raise the publishing activity to a new level. The tasks of the publishing department have changed and become more complicated: in fact, it has turned into a universal publishing house with a developed system of publishing educational and methodological and scientific literature based on new computer technologies.

The problem of providing the educational process with literature in the Kazakh language is given special attention. In 2016-2018 there were published 1221 works with the total volume of 4,912.6 pages including 73 monographs, 34 textbooks, 16 of them with the stamp of the RK MES.
