Seismo Books, located in Zurich and Geneva, has been established within the academic community of social sciences in which it is still embedded. The publishers’ aim is to provide a platform for both academic writing and public discussion of societal questions. Thereby Seismo Books promotes the discussion about social issues beyond scientific circles. Seismo publishes books and journals in German, French, English and Italian.

Scientific book projects require a qualified editing. We ensure a high standard of academic quality by means of peer reviews. The respective committees of editors examine the manuscripts intended for specific series. We include external assessors – especially if independence cannot be guaranteed otherwise.

Seismo Books is a member of SWIPS (Swiss Independent Publishers) and of SBVV (Schweizer Buchhändler- und Verleger-Verband). Moreover, Seismo Books is part of SVGW (Schweizerischer Verband der Verlage für Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften) as well as Social en Lecture.
