Ever since Barbara Budrich launched her publishing company, Barbara Budrich Publishers, her sight was set firmly on the international scientific community. The same holds true today for budrich academic and all its parts. Of course, we have very many valuable international partners— but that is just one aspect of what “going global” means to us.
Based in Germany, right in the heart of Europe, we offer our authors a global forum far beyond national boundaries.
For us "going global" means that we do not blindly follow the path trodden by corporate mainstream publishing. We appreciate the impact of the Anglo-American academic tradition, but emphasise the existence and equal value of various different ones.
First and foremost, as publishing companies we are committed to the European academic tradition as requested by our authors, and to a culture of international discourse.
Thus, going global means that we
help with translations whenever possible
keep our authors up-to-date on international events
help our authors to join international networks
use our networks to enhance international communication
help international authors to become more widely known anywhere in the world
What would you like us to do for you? Just let us know.
