GSE Research and Greenleaf Publishing announce strategic alliance to create the world’s leading sustainability publisher

GSE Research, the online scholarly publisher specializing in governance, sustainability and the environment, and Greenleaf Publishing, the leading publisher in corporate responsibility, sustainability and accountability, have announced that they will be working closely together to create the world’s leading independent sustainability publisher.

GSE will be investing significantly to digitize the whole of Greenleaf’s backlist – approximately 2,500 papers drawn from across the journals and from nearly 160 books – and provide these through the GSE Research Online Collection.

In addition, Greenleaf will be significantly increasing the number of titles it commissions and publishes from 2013 onwards.

Founded in 1999, Greenleaf publishes books and book series in the areas of corporate responsibility, business ethics, environmental policy and management, future business strategy and practice, and sustainable development.

John Peters, CEO of GSE Research, said: “We are delighted to have reached this agreement with Greenleaf, who are widely recognized as the foremost independent publisher in the field of sustainability and CSR research.”

He added: “This alliance with Greenleaf will allow us to develop our portfolio quickly. The two organisations are very closely aligned in our commercial and publishing philosophies and we anticipate fast but sustainable growth in the lists of both organizations.”

John Stuart, Managing Director of Greenleaf Publishing, said: “This alliance will enable Greenleaf to achieve the growth we have been striving for over the last few years. This is fantastic news for authors working in this subject area – both academics and practitioners.” He added: “GSE’s expertise in the rapidly expanding digital marketplace will enable Greenleaf to assume a leading position online, an area where we have been looking for assistance for some time.”
