Seismo Press, 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 Press 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 Press is a member of SWIPS (Swiss Independent Publishers), of SBVV (Schweizer Buchhandels- und Verlags-Verband) and of Zürich liest. Moreover, Seismo Press is part of SVGW (Schweizerischer Verband der Verlage für Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften), ASEH (Association suisse des éditeurs de sciences humaines et sociales), LIVRESUISSE, as well as Social en Lecture.
