The better we understand how business works, the better we train tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and business leaders, the better we deploy our planet’s finite resources – the better the world for us and future generations. That is what makes publishing in this field so exciting. We know that the research that we publish will have meaningful impact in the real world.
Take just one area – the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. It is hard to think of a single field of study within this discipline that does not have the potential to assist in progress towards those goals. We publish world leading experts in sustainable business and corporate social responsibility. We have a wide-ranging and important list in the areas of diversity, inclusion and equality in the workplace. Our books on entrepreneurship, especially those that focus on the global south, provide valuable insights into how we can increase wealth and lift people out of poverty.
The research we publish in the area of governance demonstrates the challenges and importance of holding management and political leaders to account. Even the seemingly mundane worlds of logistics and operations research have enormous potential to dramatically improve the efficiency and fairness with which we exploit the world’s resources and lessen the impact of our species on the planet. Operations Research, International Business, Strategy and Organization, Entrepreneurship and Innovation are some of the many areas where the collection stands out with exceptional books each year. Many other sub-disciplines form part of the emerging research and practical case studies books are included in the collection as well.
We are a truly international publisher, serving the research community around the globe. With hubs throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific we are perfectly positioned to connect with our book authors and editors wherever they are located. Our global base of editorial staff is located in cities such as New York, London, Heidelberg, Tokyo, Beijing, New Delhi, Singapore, Melbourne and São Paulo. They constantly travel to scientific meetings and universities to connect with the research community.
