Service to scholarship - quality and serviceHARRASSOWITZ is a traditional publishing house, which for over 145 years has devoted itself to the humanities in the widest sense and has made a name for itself. With 4,000 available titles, approx. 150 active book series and 30 academic journals and yearbooks, as well as around 250 new publications annually, HARRASSOWITZ is one of the leading international academic publishers.
We publish academic books for a wide range of scholars. We strongly emphasize that the high level of content also finds its adequate expression in the external form of the books: paper, binding, printing and graphic design should meet the highest standards. Our editors and manufacturers advise and assist the authors in manuscript preparation and printing, and our employees in advertising and sales ensure that the books are perceived, sold and received worldwide. We help to find financing opportunities and we guarantee the protection of copyrights. We keep our books available for many years, because they are a great asset and our capital.
Even though we, like every company, are guided by economic considerations, the ideational component of our actions is of great importance. Our vocation is to serve scholarship. Quality and service are our principle.
