About Us

About

Pluto Journals was launched in 2009, as an independent and international journal publisher in the field of the social sciences. We pride ourselves on producing world class journals that are at the cutting edge of humanities research today.
Pluto Journals remains an international bespoke company that prides itself on being able to offer individual services to each of our publishers. We are international in terms of subject matter, our editors come from the four corners of the world, and we sell globally. Our individual service is in terms of being able to respond to the individual needs of our journals and their editors, plus, we offer a full production and marketing service. While we are a small publisher compared to the rest, we offer a more direct, supportive, and efficient relationship with our editors, readers, and aggregators.
