Short decription: 

Continuum is a leading independent academic publisher, unconstrained by the interests of any global media group or academic institution, and based in London and New York. We enjoy the business of publishing, and thrive on working with authors to devise a successful approach for each title we publish. Our expertise and experience allow us to make quick decisions, and, when needed, to bring important ideas rapidly to a global readership. New technology provides many new paths to market, and Continuum is actively engaged in digital distribution, in a way which maximises dissemination and protects rights holders. Publishing We publish around 600 books each year, focusing on the Humanities, Education, and Religion. Our backlist comprises some 7,000 titles. Our output includes textbooks, supplementary course books, research monographs, reference works and professional books, as well as related general non-fiction. Academic proposals are peer-reviewed before we commit to publication, to help ensure quality and to support the career progression of our authors.

Information for Authors People We have editorial and sales and marketing teams in both London and New York.

In-house designers, based in London, create memorable and distinctive covers for all of our books. Our production team manages our structured workflow handling copy-editing, typesetting and printing - delivering books and electronic files to our distribution partners throughout the world. The management team has decades of experience in academic and professional publishing, and that experience generates a self confident market-orientated approach throughout the company.

Company Background The Continuum International Publishing Group is a young company: it was established in its current form in 1999, when Continuum Publishing in New York merged with the London-based Cassell’s academic and religious publishing division. Before and since that date, acquisitions have been part of the company’s strategy, and our imprints include T&T Clark, founded in Edinburgh in 1821, and Burns and Oates, founded in 1847. We are conscious that we are building upon solid and long-standing foundations, as we publish innovatively for a twenty-first century audience
