Palgrave Study Skills series rebrands with 'bold, modern look'

The Palgrave Study Skills series has rebranded as Macmillan Study Skills, offering a “new identity, refreshed digital resources” as well as additional titles to aid student wellbeing.

The Study Skills series has been published by Macmillan International Higher Education for almost 20 years, focusing on texts and digital resources that support students in the transition to university and in developing the core academic skills required to succeed on their course and in future careers. 

The titles have now been rebranded as 'Macmillan Study Skills’ to reflect the evolution of the series since it launched as Macmillan Study Guides in 1999 and then rebranded as Palgrave Study Skills in 2003, the publisher said. The design aims to be “instantly recognisable with a bold, modern look and feel”, offering  “new identity, refreshed digital resources”, according to Macmillan. The series has recently expanded into wellbeing with two new titles in this area including Mindfulness for Students with another slated for publication next year.

All new titles will be published under Macmillan Study Skills branding and existing books will be rebranded on reprint. The logos and designs for the associated digital resources, Skills 4 Study Campus and Cite Them Right Online, will also be updated. The comprehensive rebrand takes inspiration from the Macmillan Explorers, a new product line developed to offer curated e-textbook resources to students, as well as Macmillan International’s new website (

Milan Wielinga, m.d. of Macmillan International Higher Education ,said: “Over the past 20 years our study skills portfolio has achieved a strong reputation for producing top quality resources that genuinely help students. I’m really excited by this latest development and hope it’s the start of a brilliant new chapter in our study skills story.”
