Blackwell Publishing Mission Statement
Partnerships in learning, research and professional practice
Our mission is to provide an expert publishing service to other
experts - authors, editors, librarians, researchers, teachers and
their students, societies and professionals - enabling them to do
their jobs better.
We aim continuously to improve the quality and effectiveness of our
products and services.
Just as we support the advance of knowledge and learning, we are
constantly developing our own professional skills too.
We strive to align our goals and values with those of our clients and
customers. In partnership with them we are making an important
contribution to society.

5 reasons why Blackwell Publishing journals are different
1. We are the world’s leading publisher on behalf of academic and professional
societies.
–
What this means: our society journals represent excellent quality and value.
2. The average prices of our journals are low.
–
What this means: the cost per use of our journals is low.
3. We are committed to growing the intellectual strength of our journals and to
publishing the best research.
–
What this means: our list is continuously growing in size and quality.
4. Our list is both broad – covering a wide range of disciplines – and deep - we
publish several of the top titles in many core subject areas.
–
What this means: our journals can meet the research needs of most institutions.
5. Our online developments and licensing terms ensure that libraries get the most
use from their purchase.
–
What this means: the value library customers get from their purchase is high.
