Workers Are The Owners
As an academic publisher, we specialize in critical books with an international and interdisciplinary focus.
Many of our subject lists are globally renowned, this is especially the case within the fields of Development Studies, Area Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, International Politics, Sociology, Decolonization and Postcolonial Studies, Human Rights, Migration and Labour, as well as Heterodox and Development Economics. We’re not afraid to support academics that challenge the status quo to find new ways of interpreting, understanding or constructing the world we live in.
Our current catalogue features about 1,000 works across the humanities and social sciences. While we’re known for publishing different kinds of books for a variety of audiences, including general readers, the vast majority of our books and 100% of the works featured here on APP Scholar undergo in-depth peer review. Academic peer review is a cornerstone of our editorial policy.
In this section of APP Scholar, you will discover how APP Books can help you publish your recent research, support your teaching and inspire your students to think critically and internationally.
As an academic press, we pride ourselves on our scholarly publishing services. We produce award-winning books featuring the highest quality research. We work with a variety of organizations to further their research and publish socially and politically meaningful content. We provide expert editorial services, ensure exceptional production quality and provide access to global marketing and sales channels across academic, specialist and trade publishing.
Over four decades, we’ve developed a reputation as the go-to academic publisher for internationally focused, critical social science research. Our work involves curating challenging, sometimes controversial subject matter developed by institutions and groups of researchers wanting to critically examine the status quo, often including commonly held assumptions within their fields.
Originations driven not only by exceptional research and publication standards, but also by the desire to enhance diversity within their fields come to APP Books. We are exceptionally proud to partner with many remarkable institutions, societies and organizations committed to social and climate justice.
