About Us
World Scientific Publishing is a family-owned publishing house established in 1981 with only five employees in a tiny office. Today, the company employs more than 200 staff at its headquarters in Singapore and 450 globally. We have offices in London, Munich, Geneva, New Jersey, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Chennai and Tel Aviv. In about three decades, it has established itself as one of the leading scientific publishers in the world, and the largest international scientific publisher in the Asia-Pacific region.

World Scientific publishes about 600 new titles a year and 130 journals in various fields. Many of our books are recommended texts adopted by renowned institutions such as Harvard University, California Institute of Technology, Stanford University and Princeton University.

We have a flexibility and closeness with our authors that we're proud of and which we feel makes us stand out from other scientific publishers. Our aim is to create the highest quality, knowledge-based products and to enable continuous learning for the global scientific and professional communities.

We price our books with affordability in mind and publish many books in both hard and soft cover; also, e-book versions too across all the common formats. We have a direct partnership with Google to ensure your book can be easily discovered and browsed, and we're also one of the first publishers to work with Amazon on their Search Inside programme. More recently, our books are indexed by Thomson Reuters Books Citation Index and Scopus - improving discoverability and tracking citations.

Imperial College Press
Starting 1st April 2016, World Scientific Publishing Group restructured the brand and consolidated the various imprints under the World Scientific branding. This also applied to the Imperial College imprint. The current Imperial College Press staff are already and have always been integrated with World Scientific Publishing, and so all current procedures and contacts remain in place.

This move enables World Scientific Publishing Group to streamline the marketing and distribution of the Group's titles and products and better serve customers. We believe the restructuring will also improve our production processes, enabling us to better serve all our authors.

We look forward to serving our valued authors, readers and the academic community with utmost dedication.
