About Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury Publishing Plc is an award-winning, innovative and global independent publisher of fiction, non-fiction, children’s education, specialist trade and academic publishing with offices in London, Oxford, New York, Sydney and New Delhi. Bloomsbury’s Academic Division stands for excellence and originality in scholarship, teaching, learning, and professional practice. We publish over 1400 titles a year in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Our global sales and marketing team ensure our titles reach a worldwide market and are promoted at all major international scholarly and library conferences. Bloomsbury was an early mover in open access publishing, with several hundred titles already available online.

Bloomsbury Academic serves our communities of students, scholars, educators, instructors, practitioners, and librarians with specialist content, subject expertise, educational materials, cutting-edge scholarship, digital library resources and open access services. Our prestigious imprints include The Arden Shakespeare, Methuen Drama, Fairchild Books, Hart Publishing and the T & T Clark Biblical Studies and Theology lists which have been leading the field for over two hundred years, while the acquisitions of I.B. Tauris and Zed Books brings market-leading lists in Middle East and African Studies to the division. Our growing Film and Media list includes the British Film Institute and we have many other major publishing partnerships across the division, including The RSC Shakespeare. Our fast growing and distinct portfolio of online resources for institutional libraries represents the forefront of digital innovation.

In 2021 Bloomsbury acquired certain book and digital assets of Red Globe Press from Macmillan International Higher Education, providing a gateway to new and attractive academic subject areas and new digital Study Skills products for students. Also in 2021, the most recent addition of ABC-CLIO significantly increases Bloomsbury’s academic reach, expertise and presence in North America.

We are an open, flexible and responsive publisher committed to serving the needs of our customers and authors to the highest possible standard. Our vision is to set the standard for the most innovative and forward-thinking provision of academic materials for research and study now and in the future, keeping pace with the many changes in the global academic community.
