Journal transfer ensures further growth and continued delivery of high-quality content to the history and social sciences community
Taylor & Francis Group, a division of Informa UK Ltd, and Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today their decision to transfer three leading history journals – Journal of Medieval History, History of European Ideas and The History of the Family: An International Quarterly – to Taylor & Francis. These three journals will be published under the Routledge imprint from January 2012.
Routledge has a significant and well-established presence in the field, making it the ideal home for these titles. The current Routledge history programme includes a number of leading journals, including Social History, Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History, Labor History, The International History Review and Women’s History Review.
David Green, Global Publishing Director for Taylor & Francis Group Journals, said, “We are delighted to be incorporating Journal of Medieval History, History of European Ideas and The History of the Family into our substantial history portfolio. We look forward to welcoming these three prestigious journals into the Routledge history list, enabling them to benefit from our considerable presence in this field and complementing our existing range of diverse journals.”
Patrick Jackson, Senior Vice-President, Social Sciences & Economics at Elsevier, stated, “Although all three titles have developed well with Elsevier in recent years, they would benefit from an increased synergy as part of a larger programme more directly concerned with various aspects of history publishing. As such, we are very pleased that an agreement has been reached with Taylor & Francis to continue publication of these excellent titles under their stewardship, and we are confident that they will continue to prosper and to develop further there.”
