List of academic book publishers
There are five major academic publishers that produce scientific works and student literature, which are very different from the Big Five specialist publishers that produce publications for the general population. It is a prestige- some are associated with revered colleges, one of which dates back to the fifteenth century.
The five best academic publishers: Based on a "Letter's Patent" by King Henry VIII in 1534 to publish "all kinds of books", Cambridge Univeristy Press claimed to be the oldest academic publication and one of the oldest publishers and printer in the underworld. As part of the Universiy of Cambridge, the media publish 50,000 writers in more than 100 nationalities.
There are academic, vocational and educational degrees "from esthetics to zoology". Among its important writers are the poets and writers John Milton (1608 - 1674), the physicists and mathematicians Sir Isaac Newton (1642 -1727), the philosophers Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970), Noam Chomsky, a philologist and philospherist, and Stephen Hawking, a theoretic physicist. Some of the most important are the poets and writers. The Cambridge University Press has more than 50 branches around the world.
With Cambridge rivalries going back to the 13th millennium, it is perhaps not surprising that Oxford also claimed that his Oxford UPR was the oldest in the word, quoting roots from 1478, probably the year in which the first machines were founded (although the real unit of a "university press" apparently came later).
The OUP also maintains to be the world's biggest college media with the biggest worldwide coverage. Founded in 1896, the OUP New York branch began releasing its register in the 1920'. In 1926, the first of these was awarded the Pulitzer Prize. Today Oxford Univeristy Journalism is claiming a combined of fifteen Pulitzer Prize winners and releasing such renowned writers as Alan Brinkley, an anthropologist, Richard Dawkins, William Safire, a journalism and speechwriting writer, Henry Louis Gates, a literature reviewer and educationalist, Jr. and Rachel Carson, an environmental activist.

In comparison to Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press, Routledge is a young man - established in 1836; he is not even two-century-old. It is part of the Taylor & Francis Group, a commercial department of Informa UK Ltd.
Rolexledge claimed to be the world's foremost academic publishers of the humanities and social sciences, releasing some 2,000 new works each year through a number of practices around the globe. With a baklist of more than 35,000 printed works, Routledge has released a number of outstanding writers including the theory of physics Albert Einstein, the thinker Ludwig Wittgenstein, the shrink and therapist Carl Jung, the thinker Marshall McLuhan and the thinker, author and campaigner Jean-Paul Sartre.
Although it was started in 1905 by a Princeton alumnus, Whitney Darrow, and began to print the school's Alumni Weekly, Princeton was always in private ownership and control, unlike most college machines held or funded by colleges. The PUP started in leased premises over Marsh's chemist store on Nassau Street in Princeton, New Jersey.
A fiduciary of the University and a New York book publishing house, Charles Scribner provided funding and the state. PUP writers have included Theodore Roosevelt, Joseph Campbell and Stephen Hawking. The I Ging, published by Princeton University Press and published by Wilhelm / Baynes, has a circulation of over 900,000 books.
Fifth Avenue, Palgrave Macmillan is best known for its publications in the fields of the arts, sociology and economics. The Londoners Daniel and Alexander Macmillan publish their first two volumes in 1843; in 1861 they publish a collection of poems by Francis Turner Palgrave, which became a best-seller for them.
They opened an New York City branch on Bleecker Street in 1869. Well-known writers are W. B. Yeats and John Maynard Keynes. Palgrave Macmillan first released The Statesman's Yearbook in 1864, a one-volume encyclopedia containing information about the lands of the earth that is still being released today.
