Maney Publishing was an independent academic publishing company specialising in peer-reviewed academic journals in materials science and engineering, the humanities, and health science. The company has offices in Leeds and London in the United Kingdom, and in Boston and Philadelphia in the United States. Maney publishes extensively for learned societies, universities, and professional bodies. In 2007, Maney Publishing (USA) was incorporated, to attract work from North American bodies. Starting 2016, the company is part of Taylor & Francis.[1]

As of 2014, Maney employs over 50 staff and publishes over 150 journals.[2] The company offers an open access option (MORE OpenChoice) to all authors.


Maney Publishing was formed in 1997, from a specialist typesetting and printing company, W.S. Maney & Son Ltd, which had been founded in Leeds in 1900. Maney's transition from printing to publishing was based on a series of long-standing relationships with learned societies and academic bodies. The oldest such partner is the English Goethe Society, with which Maney has worked since 1947. Newly joined organisations with publishing agreements in the 21st century include the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, for whom Maney has published journals and books since 2001.

Maney was acquired by Taylor & Francis (itself a part of Informa) in July 2015.[3]
