Breaking boundariesWould you like to publish your research at its natural length? Palgrave Pivot allows you to publish at lengths of between 25,000 and 50,000 words - longer than a journal article, but shorter than a monograph.
Launched in 2012, Palgrave Pivot has already published over 200 titles, providing authors with a flexible and swift publication process. Accepted manuscripts are published within 12 weeks after a complete peer review process. You can read about the impact some of our Palgrave Pivot titles have had here.
This is an exciting new development which provides a welcome alternative to the conventional journal article or monograph conundrum. Palgrave Pivot seems like an ideal format for scholars seeking to disseminate their research while it is still fresh and current.- Neil Chakraborti, Senior Lecturer in Criminology, University of Leicester, UK
We publish across the Humanities, the Social Sciences and Business. All titles are available as both ebooks and hardcovers.
Palgrave Pivot meets a need for timely research in the digital world. The humanities and social sciences have been left behind in the immediacy of published research and Palgrave Pivot should be a great innovation to meet the needs of 21st century students and researchers in these fields. As we know, ‘speed’ and ‘innovation’ are key in the current world of scholarly research.- Jane Fitzpatrick, Acquisitions Librarian, CUNY Graduate Center, USA

From the beginning of the process through receiving the copies, I have appreciated the professional and courteous attention. It is quite daunting for all concerned to engage in any production project, but even more so with the quick turn-around. I appreciate the focused engagement at each of the stages and enjoyed learning about the process.-Tracy M. Shilcutt, Associate Professor, Department of History, Abilene Christian University, USA
