Working at De Gruyter

For the Love of Science. As a scholarly publisher, we support researchers so they can give their best to the world, and we have been doing this successfully since 1749. Our long publishing tradition, combined with our curiosity, is the starting point for progress. We are pleased to say that we do this in an atmosphere of security since we are family-owned and proudly independent.

Annually, we publish approximately 1,300 books as well as journals, databases and other scientific products, both in print and digitally. We are also one of the major open access publishers. We are ambitious and help to create change by seizing the technological opportunities of our time. This is how we expand access to knowledge – continuously – while paying close attention to quality.

Our publishing program is found, made, produced and marketed by over 350 dedicated employees who are spread across the world in Basle, Beijing, Berlin, Boston, Munich, Vienna and Warsaw. Our content is distributed all over the world – 29 publishing areas covered by 8 imprints by people who never stop learning. Because we want to know.
