Welcome to Social Science Matters!
Over the last year we have been working with our academic community, conducting interviews to define workflows, discuss pain points and identify opportunities for promoting the research which we publish. Social Science Matters is a result of this research and marks our commitment to championing the Social Sciences. Launching with the publication of Why the Social Sciences Matter in January 2015, we have a number of other events and initiatives planned for the year ahead. Please do follow our progress using the information on this page, through our subject Twitter feeds, or get in touch if you’d like to speak to us about ideas or partnerships.
Macmillan has a long and proud tradition of publishing in the social sciences since the 19th century, publishing key works in the field such as The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and key authors, including JM Keynes. We are one of the largest publishers of social science research, with offices in London, New York and Shanghai, and are due to publish over 1000 titles in 2015 across all the major subject areas of the field. We are known for supporting early career researchers, championing pioneering research in new fields and establishing series that come to define their research fields (such as the IPE series, which we've been publishing for over 30 years!).
We are passionate about publishing original and authoritative research in the Social Sciences and have brought our range of content together in one place to help provide information about our titles, products, events, and activities. We've also identified some key areas where we feel that we can add value - you can read more about these below.
