The Palgrave Macmillan imprint will continue unchanged globally, the company has announced, despite the Palgrave trade imprint used by St Martin's Press in the US being closed.
Last week St Martin’s Press in the US announced it would be retiring the Palgrave imprint, a boutique imprint that publishes 45-50 original titles per year. The imprint has been specifically for Palgrave Macmillan’s trade non-fiction list for serious non-fiction, aimed at a general audience.
Globally Palgrave Macmillan is part of the recently formed Springer Nature and publishes books, monographs and journals in professional, business, finance and the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). The Palgrave Macmillan imprint will continue to publish in the UK, US and globally.
The Palgrave higher education imprint also continues as part of Springer Nature.
In a statement released last week (5th June) Palgrave Macmillan said: “We are aware that a recent St Martin’s Press announcement has caused some confusion and concern amongst Palgrave Macmillan authors, agents and distributors. Palgrave Macmillan and St Martin’s Press hope that this statement provides clarity and reassurance.”
