Ashgate acquired by Informa

ASHGATE ACQUIRED BY INFORMA (Taylor & Francis)

We announce that Ashgate Publishing has been acquired by Informa, owners of the academic publishing group Taylor & Francis. Over the last 48 years Ashgate has grown to become one of the leading publishers of academic monographs and reference works under the Ashgate imprint, and Gower continues to be a highly respected brand name in business and management books. Taylor & Francis, through its Routledge imprint, is a long established publisher with an excellent reputation and a strong commitment to the academic and professional fields in which Ashgate and Gower publish. Together, Taylor & Francis with Ashgate and Gower are now the largest academic book publisher worldwide in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

With its combined resources and expertise we see this as a positive move for all our authors and the academic and professional communities we serve.

Please continue to direct enquiries to your usual Ashgate and Gower contacts. A full list of contacts can be found on the Contact Us page.

    Will Ashgate continue as a separate imprint, or will it be folded into Routledge or some other Informa imprint?
