Since the ECPR’s establishment in 1970, publishing research in political science and political thought has been one of its key activities, initially through journals for the profession, and subsequently with the launch of several specialised book series in collaboration with academic publishers.
In 2005 the ECPR launched its own imprint, the ECPR Press, offering high-quality
Monographs from young scholars and republishing out-of-print Classics that had made a significant contribution to political studies. Since then, the Press has expanded its scope, publishing Monographs by established scholars which had already appeared in languages other than English; and printing several volumes of general interest to the profession. In 2011 two new series were added: Studies in European Political Science and Essays.
ECPR Press now publishes original research from leading political scientists and the best young scholars in the discipline. Its scope extends to all fields of political science, international relations and political thought, without restriction in approach or regional focus. The Press is also open to interdisciplinary work with a predominant political dimension.

Based in London, RLI is an innovative, fast-growing academic publisher in the humanities and social sciences. It is affiliated with US-based Rowman & Littlefield, which recently marked its 40th anniversary as a leading independent publisher in the United States.
