In 1913, we published a work that was destined to become a standard text in the field of management: Frederick W. Taylor‘s The Principles Of Scientific Management. This book laid the foundations for ergonomics and is quoted in every modern lecture on economics.

Today, we are still demonstrating our flair for forward-looking topics in economics and social sciences with our De Gruyter Oldenbourg programme. New publications draw on subject areas such as sports economics, health care, empirical social research and behavioural economics while at the same time building an important foundation for research in interdisciplinary fields.

This means our specialist technical literature, textbooks and journals aren’t just relevant to economists, but also to researchers in related fields.
