About Palgrave Pivot

Palgrave Pivot: Breaking Boundaries

Publishing across the Humanities, the Social Sciences and Business, Palgrave Pivot introduces an innovative new format for scholarly research. Liberating scholarship from the straitjacket of traditional formats and business models, Palgrave Pivot offers authors the flexibility of publishing at lengths between the journal article and the conventional monograph (typically 25-50,000 words).

Palgrave Pivot emphasizes speed of delivery as well as innovation. Titles are published within 12 weeks of acceptance with a complete peer-review process. Palgrave Pivot publications are available as digital collections for libraries, including via Palgrave Connect, individual ebooks for personal use, and as digitally-produced print editions.

A complete list of Palgrave Pivot titles can be found on Palgrave Connect.

Samantha Burridge, Executive Director at Palgrave Macmillan, says, "As scholarly publishing evolves in the digital world, Palgrave Pivot allows us to deliver quality new research rapidly. Palgrave Pivot is a market-changing initiative for the Humanities and Social Sciences and presents our communities with an alternative publishing model. We are proud to be at the forefront of development in the digital space."

On Publishing with Palgrave Pivot:

 “It was incredibly efficient. It was a really good experience, and a positive experience. The Editors [...] are wonderful - they were really efficient and really nice as well, which is an advantage. [Publishing with Palgrave Pivot] gave me an opportunity to do something I've never done before.”
