CRC Press


Through the years, CRC Press has gone through a number of acquisitions and mergers, but its name and its mission remain intact. Currently CRC Press functions as the principal science and technology book division of the Taylor & Francis Group, an Informa Company. In getting to this notable position, more changes have occurred than we can list.
The acquisition of Lewis Publishers in 1990 made CRC the leading publisher of environmental science books and the subsequent additions of St. Lucie Press and Auerbach Publishing extended our reach into business management and information technology. The acquisition of Chapman & Hall's mathematics and statistics titles in 1998 took us to the head of the class in these two fields.
In 2003 CRC Press became a member of the Taylor & Francis publishing group. No scientific publisher has a more illustrious history than Taylor & Francis. Established in 1783, Taylor & Francis launched the world leading physics and material science journal, the Philosophical Magazine, which was the first of the more than 1000 journals it now publishes covering nearly every facet of human endeavor.
As if marrying into that lineage wasn't impressive enough, CRC Press also benefited from the independent 2004 merger of Taylor and Francis with Informa. While the corporate name Informa came into being only as of 1998, the organization can trace its roots back to 1734 when the first issue of the maritime publication Lloyd's List was pinned to the wall of Edward Lloyd's City of London coffee shop. With over 150 offices across the world, Informa plc is the leading international provider of specialist information and services for the academic and scientific, professional, and commercial business communities. Operating in over 40 countries, it produces 10,000 events annually. Strong organic growth bolstered by thoughtful acquisitions has made CRC Press / Taylor and Francis Group a leader in science and technical publishing. Many renowned publishers have come under the CRC banner, including Marcel Dekker Publishing, the book division of the Institute of Physics, Productivity Press, and A K Peters LTD. Already an international leader in chemistry, life sciences, engineering, mathematics, statistics, information technology, and computer science, we've strengthened our collection of cutting-edge resources with the addition of lean manufacturing, computer game development, and compu
ter graphics titles.
