About Palgrave Connect


As a result of the merger between Macmillan Science and Education and Springer Science+Business Media, Palgrave Macmillan and Springer have decided to align our eBook collections, collating them all on one platform for our customers to find and use easily. As of October 2015, Palgrave Macmillan offers institutions the opportunity to purchase access to the Palgrave Macmillan’s complete eBook collection through SpringerLink.

Starting with the 2016 collections, all titles that would have been available on Palgrave Connect will be integrated into the 10 Springer eBook collections that focus on the humanities, social sciences and business, management and finance disciplines. A complete list of the 10 eBook collections can be found by visiting the Springer eBooks information page.

This includes the content that is currently available within the following 12 subject areas:

Access to books online is rapidly becoming as important for academics and professionals as traditional print models - in some cases even more important, since eBooks bring powerful benefits such as searchability, remote access and multiple concurrency.

Access to your ebook via ebook suppliers


Some Palgrave Macmillan ebook titles are available via third parties. There are, however, no third-party vendors that will be selling our ebooks on a collection basis or who will be selling all of our ebook titles. As a result of the administration process, there is often a delay after the print publication date before books become available on third-party websites.
