What I like best about Mouton is the way its staff understands its clientele: linguists. However complex a project may be, Mouton will do its best to find a solution that combines the highest academic standards, the desires of its authors and editors, and the reality of the world of international academic publishing.

My experience as a De Gruyter author has been incredibly positive. The submission and approval processes are both straightforward and rapid and the technical standards are first-rate and highly professional. Overall, the program features outstanding and exciting science and technology titles and I am honored that my book is part of the program.

In my experience, both as an author and editor, I’ve found in DG staff support and assistance during all the phases of publishing. [...] I strongly believe that to find a very good publisher, one who’s willing to take great care of your academic work, is something rare. I’m happy to have found it in DG.

I strongly recommend working with Birkhäuser – not least of all because this sort of editorial control is increasingly becoming the exception rather than the rule.

The steady stream of high quality publications in the field of Jewish studies by [De Gruyter’s] publishing house enriches our field of research considerably. And it is not only the contents of these publications but also their superb technical execution that is enjoyable. Moreover, it is great to work with De Gruyter’s staff.
