Welcome to the 2014 Business, Management and Accounting online catalogue.
Thank you for taking a look at our latest annual catalogue, which focuses on a broad range of new titles publishing in 2014 across the business disciplines. Publishers always want to categorize their books and authors, and you’ll notice that we’ve split this catalogue up by sub-discipline. We’re confident that there’s something for everyone within these pages and look forward to your feedback.
One of the ways in which an academic publisher can add value is quality control and product development and at Routledge we’re proud that all of our books undergo peer review. This investment ensures that we maintain a high level of quality and also helps our authors to develop their work. The range and quality of our programme is also aided by our commitment to the academic community in the form of supporting conferences and workshops – we hope you will see evidence of this in your own travel plans this year. The biggest conference of the year is the Academy of Management, whose theme, “The Power of Words”, sits well with our goal as a global academic publisher across the humanities and social sciences. Another element of our publishing is our growing “Routledge Paperbacks Direct” programme – we use this to re-release a significant number of our more specialist books in cheaper paperback versions and you’ll notice many of these throughout this year’s catalogue.
I recommend looking out for our prestigious and popular Routledge Companion volumes. We will publish a good number of these in 2014 and they provide truly comprehensive and authoritative coverage of areas such as auditing and human resource development. As ever, we’re delighted to present a wide range of textbooks (both specialist and introductory), as well as cutting-edge research books which sit comfortably alongside our gamut of journals. Finally, I hope that the diversity in our programme is apparent and that it will inspire potential authors to get in touch about new writing plans – we are always happy to hear from you.
