The Springer Nature social science collection brings together a set of hugely well-established publishing programs that date back to the start of the Palgrave Macmillan and Springer imprints. Since the formation of Springer Nature in 2015 the combination of these two complementary social science catalogues makes Springer Nature the largest, most global publisher of social science books. And for social scientists, with books the primary publishing output, this has become the collection all social science departments need.
The collection features carefully curated content not only from the core social sciences but also emerging fields in interdisciplinary spaces, with intersectional approaches providing content on critical race theory, migration, gender studies, and social perspectives on environmental sustainability. All of which makes this package essential not only for social science departments, but any researcher on climate change, race and gender equity and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The collection is rich in content types and includes carefully chosen textbooks such as “Springer Texts in the Social Sciences”, and a range of interdisciplinary focused graduate core-and non-core texts from Palgrave. The result is not only a large but a high quality and diverse package, containing qualitative and quantitative, award-winning titles. Springer Nature is a social science champion, and this collection provides researchers with all the content this vital and evolving set of disciplines bring to the world.
