Publishing Partnerships

Palgrave Communications welcomes enquiries about publishing collections (sometimes alternatively referred to as ‘special issues’ or 'supplements'). Collections are usually based on a common theme or originate from a conference, symposium or workshop; they may be sponsored by an institution or funding body. We offer a fast, simple and personal editorial service, with all collections subject to the journal’s high editorial standards.
If you would like to discuss a potential collaboration, please contact the editorial team in the first instance for more details.
