Social Science

Palgrave Macmillan has a long and proud tradition of publishing in the social sciences. Since the 19th century we have been publishing not only across the core social sciences but also ensuring we are at the cutting edge of new or evolving subject areas such as sustainability, gender and queer studies or social implications of neuroscience and AI. As part of the Springer Nature family we are now one of the largest publishers of social science research in the world with editors based in London, New York, Melbourne and Shanghai, publishing more than 1000 titles per year. 

Palgrave Social Science is known for championing pioneering research in new or under-represented areas and publishing books and book series that come to define their research fields, both in traditional academic publishing models and through OA, and our Social Science Matters campaign is just one of the ways in which we show our commitment and passion for this lively, diverse and vital set of disciplines.
