With 350 companies operating in over 80 countries, the Macmillan Publishing Group is one of the largest and best-known international publishing groups in the world. It is characterised by high-quality academic and scholarly, educational, fiction and non-fiction publishing in many forms, from STM and social science journals to serious non-fiction and literary fiction; from educational course materials and dictionaries to college textbooks, academic monographs and reference with supporting online resource sites.
As a privately owned company, one of Macmillan's strengths is its ability to focus on organic development and investment for the long term. Macmillan prides itself on a willingness to innovate as well as on employing visionary people with the creative and business sense to develop and implement new ideas. This focus has successfully led to the expansion of the group into new business areas and an ability to innovate, especially in the digital space.
Macmillan is particularly unusual in the publishing world in its commitment to service and is one of the only publishing groups to provide other publishers with services throughout the author-to-reader cycle through its Macmillan Publishing Solutions division.
