Computer Sciences

De Gruyter Oldenbourg is continuing the long tradition of one of oldest publishers of textbooks and journals in the computer science. With our well-established German-language textbooks by renowned authors, some of which have associated sets of exercises, we are one of the highest-profile publishers of IT literature.

We keep up-to-date with developments in teaching, research and practice with our regular new editions and updates, as well as our new titles on current topics.

Computer science has an impact on almost all other academic subjects. Accordingly, our current titles also reflect interdisciplinary subjects such as bioinformatics and health informatics – in both German and English.

Our authors work in both teaching and industry, and thus combine a practical focus with an academic foundation. This ensures that our range is of interest to a broad audience.
