Indian academic publications

India has a thriving English language publishing industry, covering a whole range of academic disciplines, textbooks and studies. Many of these are specific to Indian and Oriental studies and are not available through western publishers. These include titles on Indian religious studies, Indian Languages including Sanskrit and Pali, postcolonial studies and contemporary South Asian politics. Global topics are also covered extensively by Indian academic authors, giving universities and libraries the benefit of a unique cultural perspective from outside the European – American academic community.

Stocking Indian titles is therefore an extremely valuable resource for your academic readers, on all subjects, whether for students, researchers or educators.  India’s 300+ Universities depend on quality publishing and authors, and almost exclusively use Indian published titles today.

Why stock Indian academic books?

India has one of the fastest-growing technical economies in the world. This is fed by a thriving university network containing some of the best academic and engineering schools in the world. As with any university, Indian universities seek out the best resources from Academics around the world, but they mostly supplied by home-grown publishers with world-class academic studies specifically geared towards the high standards of Indian students who now account for 25% of the worlds graduates, and higher in Medicine, Computer science, and Engineering where India excels.

The advantage this offers British, American and European universities is through the wide use of English among Indian academic publishers. English is the official language of government, commerce and education in India, making thousands of academic titles immediately available to anyone in the world who reads English.  They are already widely used by students in the Middle East and Africa due to the competitive pricing, an important consideration for all students, everywhere.
