Community of Innovators

We believe that ABC-CLIO is defined by the extraordinary people we are fortunate to have within our company. We go to great lengths to attract and retain the most talented individuals, because that’s what it takes to maintain our standards of excellence.

Our People

ABC-CLIO is a company of dedicated professionals working to create new possibilities in research, education, and learning. We employ skilled scholars, editors, researchers, marketers, technologists, and others who are committed to innovation, integrity, and excellence. Many of us work together in subject-specific teams, building deep expertise that is reflected in an extraordinary range of products published across a wide spectrum of media. Working at ABC-CLIO represents an opportunity to learn from and interact with some of the best minds that can be found anywhere. We consider it a privilege to work with such exemplary people, and the high standards set by our colleagues push everyone to produce their best work every day.

Our Culture

It is our goal not only to find and hire the best people available, but also to create an environment where they can work together to produce outstanding products. We have been innovators since our company’s founding, embracing the power of computers and digital media long before most saw their transformational potential. Today, innovation is a core part of our identity—we are always challenging ourselves to find new and better ways.

With offices in California and Colorado—as well as employees working independently in 20 more states around the United States—we are proud of our diverse workforce and their broad range of talents. The deep integration of technology into every aspect of our operations enables us to maintain the close lines of communication that we depend on to collaborate.
