Breaking boundaries Since 2012
Would you like to publish your research at its natural length?
Palgrave Pivot has enabled authors to publish at lengths of between 25,000 and 50,000 words - longer than a journal article, but shorter than a monograph, taking advantage of a swift and flexible publication process to dramatically reduce publication times.
By publishing new research quickly and maintaining high editorial standards, our authors' research is given the opportunity to have a great impact.
Publishing across the Humanities, the Social Sciences and Business, Palgrave Pivot is extremely proud to be at the forefront of this evolution in digital publishing.
