Berg Publishers was an academic publishing company based in Oxford, England that was founded in 1983 by Marion Berghahn.[1] Berg published monographs, textbooks, and reference works as well as academic journals. Concentrations were fashion, design, anthropology, history, and cultural studies.[2]


Book Industry Communication (BIC), a trade standards group for electronic commerce and supply chain efficiency, awarded Berg its BIC Product Data Excellence Gold Award in 2007–2008[3] and its e4books project accredited Berg in 2008.[4] Berg won the Independent Publishers Guild's 2008 Publishing Technology E-Publishing Award for its collection of profitable digital strategies in March 2008.[5]

As of March 2008, Berg published thirteen journals.[6] In September 2008, Bloomsbury Publishing agreed to buy Oxford International Publishers, trading as Berg Publishers.[7] Since 2013, all Berg titles are published under the Bloomsbury name (under the imprint Bloomsbury Academic).
