Palgrave Macmillan Accessibility Statement

Starting from February 2006, Palgrave Macmillan Ltd. sites are being constructed to be accessible to a wider range of people than before, including those using assistive technology.

Below is a list of some of the features we have adopted in order to make your browsing experience easier. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems accessing our content. We have tried to cater for as many people as possible but there may be occasions when we can further improve our accessibility.

Web Standards

We have made every attempt to build this site using strict extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML 1.0) and standardized best practices (accessible sites using valid and semantically correct code). This ensures Palgrave Macmillan sites will be compatible with past, present and future web browsers/applications.

Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict

Alternative content
For those members of our audience who use screenreader or speech browser software, we've provided sensible alternative text for images where this alternative text will aid your understanding of the webpage. If you discover an image that does not have suitable alternative text, please contact us.

Accessible Palgrave websites now allow you to customize the font size to suit your personal preferences. Most browsers will allow you to change the font size. Below is a screenshot of Internet Explorer's and Firefox's "text size" menu option - most browsers have a similar feature - usually somewhere in the "View" menu. Please see the "help" section in your browser for more details on customisation.
