With a solid backlist of more than 3,500 titles, transcript releases about 400 new German- and English-language titles every year. Thanks to their London office and international partner presses, their international program is growing continually.

Since their beginnings in the late 1990s, transcript has been dedicated to providing an editorial service for innovative research, and to giving this content an unmistakable look. These commitments have formed a unique and well-balanced program, which contributes high-quality publications to the latest debates in various academic disciplines. Along with scholarly formats, publications also include stimulating essays that reach beyond purely academic audiences.

Keeping with their mission to promote scholarly dissemination across borders, transcript verlag partnered with Bielefeld University Press, a publication platform for future oriented top research content in humanities. BiUP considers the fact that the scientific knowledge gained by humanities is becoming increasingly important in view of the social and global political challenges of our time.
