Publishing group Peter Lang and the Istanbul private university Bahçeşehir Üniversitesi (BAU) have signed a cooperation agreement. It will initially be valid for two years starting in summer 2018. During this period, BAU supports publication projects from its approximately 1000 teachers and research assistants, which are submitted to Peter Lang and accepted for publication. Research in the humanities and social sciences, but also in engineering, is eligible for funding if the research subject touches on humanities topics. The objective of the cooperation is to make scientific research at BAU accessible to a broader international audience. The Peter Lang Publishing Group has had its own office in Turkey since 2015. Its editorial focus is on economics, political science, sociology as well as media and communication sciences. Publication languages are English, German and French (further information).
