Popularizing scientific books on the market plays a key role in providing knowledge and education to the public. AMU Press makes various efforts to this end, including: publishing popular science books, participating in and organizing book and reading contests, participating in science festivals, conferences and publishing fairs, or organizing meetings with authors.

Social media play a special role in the popularization of scientific books. Reviews, recommendations and discussions among readers help to create a community interested in a particular topic. Moreover, the development of science-related audiobooks and podcasts make it possible to access scientific knowledge in a form better tailored to modern consumer trends.
