About us
Iberoamericana / Vervuert was founded in Frankfurt in 1975 as a bookstore specializing in the distribution of academic works and belles lettres, focusing on books and journals published in Spain, Portugal and Latin America. In 2004 the bookstore “Iberoamericana” in Madrid opened its doors in the Arts and Letters neighborhood of Huertas, as an establishment specializing in Hispanic Humanities.

The publication of the journal Iberoamericana in 1977 marked the beginning of our publishing activity. Currently, we publish about 75 titles a year, mostly in Spanish, with a primarily academic program in History, Literature, Art and Language in Spain and Latin America. Along with the journal Iberoamericana, which after three decades has become one of the most respected publications in the field of Spanish and Latin American Studies, we also publish RILI (Revista Internacional de Lingüística Iberoamericana), dedicated to the Ibero-Romance languages.

Our company’s publishing and bookselling policy is based on dialogue and international exchange. Over 3,000 authors and collaborating editors, as well as the directors of our 25 plus book series, hail from several countries not only in Spain and Latin America, but also from USA and countries across Europe.

The scholarly rigor of our publications is a fundamental part of our philosophy. All our titles are subject to peer review by independent evaluators and researchers in the field. We are currently amongst the most prestigious academic publishers specializing in Spanish and Latin American Studies.

Our bookstore and publishing branches benefit mutually from our network of contacts and can thus respond to the needs and specific requirements of our market. Through print and electronic catalogs, bibliographical cards or listings, we prepare individualized offers for our clients. Major US and Canadian university libraries receive our books or those of other Spanish or Latin American publishers through approval plans or blanket orders. We also have many clients from other European countries, and from as far away as Japan and Australia.
