Having grown up in a family and a town with deep roots in academic publishing, Barbara Budrich started her academic publishing outfit, Verlag Barbara Budrich, in 2004. Based in Opladen, situated near Cologne and Dusseldorf, this region has been known since 1947 as a location for social-science publishers.

Our mission is to support social sciences and humanities in their quest of gaining further knowledge and understanding of their fields, and distributing these findings to the academic community and a broader public. We are convinced that current findings can help overcome the problems society and our world are facing today.
