Z is for Zagreb, Zurich, ZwickauZagreb, Zurich, Zwickau…wherever in the world you work, there is a chance that you’ll meet one of us at a conference. We travel to many events around the world each year to promote our latest books and to meet with our authors, readers and contacts. Conferences are among our favourite aspects of the job as we love to meet people face to face and get to know the people behind email addresses and book orders! If you see our stand at a conference, be it in Zagreb, Zurich, Zwicklau (or anywhere else in the world) please do not hesitate to drop by our stand and say hello!

Y is for Young ScholarsY is for Young Scholars. We are proud to support young scholars, be that by giving talks to graduate students on publishing, chatting informally with them about their research at conferences or offering guidance as they publish their first chapter or even full length monograph with us. A few of our publications have their origins in PhD research however we are keen to stress that we do not publish PhDs in their PhD form. We expect such works to have been fully revised and restructured for publication for a book audience. When done well, such publications can be a very successful way of getting new and interesting research to a wider audience.

R is for Review ProcessR is for Review Process. The review process is central to our publications and a matter that we are very strict on. We pride ourselves on publishing quality academic research that has been thoroughly reviewed. All of our publications are peer-reviewed, be that by one or more external peers, a series editor or both. We believe that it is fair to compensate our reviewers appropriately for the time that they find to do these jobs for us, either in the form of payment, a quota of free books, or royalties, in the case of series editors.
