De Gruyter and American Political Science Association (APSA) Sign Partnership Agreement

De Gruyter and the American Political Science Association (APSA) are pleased to announce an agreement on a cooperation partnership to publish two new book series: The De Gruyter-APSA Teaching Civic Engagement Series and The De Gruyter-APSA Political Science Professional Development Series.

The De Gruyter-APSA Teaching Civic Engagement Series will publish must-have texts that offer unique, comprehensive, and applied research in support of civic engagement pedagogy globally, to help faculty to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, values, and confidence they need to be active, engaged citizens. The De Gruyter-APSA Political Science Professional Development Series will publish essential texts on professional development topics for those navigating the academic life cycle in political science, from graduate school to academic and applied careers – and beyond.

In its many activities, APSA plays a key role both in advancing civic engagement and in supporting current and aspiring political scientists on their career paths. Books in these Book Series will continue to serve these audiences well.

“Providing resources for teaching and learning, civic engagement and professional development for political scientists is a key part of APSA’s mission,” said Steven Rathgeb Smith, APSA Executive Director, “and we are delighted to be partnering with a historic publisher like De Gruyter on these new book series to expand our offering and reach of these titles for our members and the entire discipline.”

De Gruyter’s growing Social Sciences program is rapidly building up its own global English-language political science publishing program. Books in the program address contemporary and applied concerns, embrace interdisciplinarity, and feature books that make an impact in American politics, international politics, and broad political studies.

With 270 years of experience, De Gruyter is one of the leading global academic publishers, internationally renowned for publishing the critical editions of great philosophers such as Kant, Marx, and Nietzsche, and serving an ever-growing academic community worldwide. Through the Institutional Partner program, De Gruyter is a trusted partner to support the goals, values, and brand of centers, societies, and organizations like the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College and Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University.

“We are proud to publish these new Book Series together with the American Political Science Association. The partnership with APSA is a key milestone in our North America plan and we are so pleased to be working with such an esteemed scholarly society to advance their mission and ours,” said Gerhard Boomgaarden, Editorial Director for Social Sciences at De Gruyter.
