Welcome to IAP

Founded in 1999 by George F. Johnson, IAP is a social science publisher of academic and scholarly book series, monographs, handbooks, encyclopedia and journals. IAP's goal is to develop a comprehensive collection of materials that break down and define specific niches that lack high-level research material in the fields of Education, Psychology, Management, Leadership, Educational Technology, Mathematics and Black studies. Our products are offered in both print and electronic formats where possible. We market and promote our materials to librarians, professors and professionals throughout the world. We look forward to having you become a part of our continuously growing program.

Although IAP is relatively new to the publishing arena, publishing is not new to its founder. With companies such as JAI Press, Greenwood Publishing, Ablex Publishing and Academic Press being a part of his family heritage, it is only natural for yet another generation to build a publishing house.
