Mercury provides print and digital content in the areas of science, technology and computing, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) designed for the professional/ reference, trade, library, higher education, career school, and online training markets.
For De Gruyter, the acquisition forms part of a strategic growth initiative in North America. In addition to further amplifying its successful service and partner business via its Boston office and North American sales and partner team, the publishing house founded in 1749 is currently ramping up its editorial presence in North America to publish more titles from North American authors in the humanities, social sciences as well as science, technology, and mathematics.
The integration of Mercury’s portfolio will add to and complement De Gruyter’s existing list in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to the benefit of researchers in these fields. De Gruyter will distribute all Mercury content globally via its sales teams and its digital platform degruyter.com, thus increasing the global reach and discoverability of Mercury’s titles.
