Palgrave Pivot

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.

  • Speed: accepted manuscripts published within 12 weeks
  • Flexibility: publish at lengths between the journal article and conventional monograph
