Pensoft Publishers is a company
specializing in the field of academic and professional book and journal
publishing. Founded in 1994, Pensoft has established
itself as one of the leading academic publishers in Eastern Europe with more
than 800 books and e-books published so far.
We largely perform our activities in English, with only a minor fraction of our publications being in other languages.
In 2008, Pensoft launched its
first open access journals named ZooKeys
which is now considered as being the most technologically advanced journal in
taxonomy. The successful model of ZooKeys was shortly followed by PhytoKeys, MycoKeys and Nature Conservation.
In the last years Pensoft has developed and implemented several innovations in its openaccess journal publishing platform. Currently the company publishes 10
open access biodiversity journals. Pensoft is actively developing new methods for
dissemination of taxonomy information, including publishing of atomized,
semantically enhanced automated exports to global data aggregators, such as Encyclopedia
of Life, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, Species-ID and others. The
company is partnering with several world institutions in the development of
common data publishing standards and workflows. The complete list of our
publishing services is available here.
2003, Pensoft has been publishing for or partnering in several European Union
FP5 and FP6 projects, such as
ALARM, BIOFORUM, MACMAN, MACIS, EUROLIMPACS, RUBICODE. Presently, Pensoft is taking part in the projects SCALES, STEP, MOTIVE, CLIMIT, ViBRANT, LEGATO, BESAFE, PROIBIOSPHERE and EUBON.

communication and publishing, as well as in creating and maintaining websites
