ECPR Press joins forces with Rowman & Littlefield International

Published on Thursday 01 Jun 2017

The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) is pleased to announce that ECPR Press will be operated from 1 June 2017 in a new partnership with Rowman & Littlefield International (RLI).

ECPR is an independent scholarly association, established in 1970. Its 350 institutional members across around 50 countries represent the leading universities, students and senior academics engaged in the research and teaching of political science worldwide.  The output of ECPR Press extends to all fields of political science, international relations and political thought, without restriction in approach or regional focus.


RLI, based in London, is an innovative and fast-growing academic publisher in the humanities and social sciences. It is affiliated with Rowman & Littlefield, based in Washington DC, which recently marked its 40th anniversary as a leading US independent publisher. Political science is a key area of focus within its own publishing, on both sides of the Atlantic.


Commenting on the new publishing partnership, Professor Rudy Andeweg, Chair of ECPR, said: “We are proud that ECPR Press, which we launched in 2005, has gained such a prominent position in disseminating high quality work in political science, and we are very pleased that it will gain new impetus through this important publishing partnership. The ECPR team and membership look forward to working with the RLI team to develop our publishing.”


Oliver Gadsby, Chief Executive of RLI, added: “We are pleased and excited to be entering into this new publishing partnership with ECPR. We have been very struck by the depth of connections and research across the ECPR network, and we look forward to the next stage of development for ECPR Press. We will be working closely with the ECPR Editorial Board and team to support the current programme and expand the publishing, which will continue to be of the highest quality in its authorship and selection of titles. We will bring to bear our editorial, digital, production, sales and marketing teams in London and Washington to ensure that ECPR Press authors reach the widest possible readership around the world.”
