The founders of Macmillan Publishers, brothers Daniel and Alexander Macmillan, started trading at 57 Aldersgate St., London and published their first two books. They then moved the business to Cambridge where they were based until 1863. In 1869, Macmillan began to expand internationally, opening an office in New York, initially in Bleecker St, and growing from there. Palgrave, Macmillan's global academic publishing brand launched in 2000. This new division was created through the integration of Macmillan Press and St Martin's Press Scholarly and Reference. The name Palgrave is derived from the Palgrave family, who had a long association with publishing and with the highest levels of achievement in humanities and the social sciences. The name changed to Palgrave Macmillan in 2002. In 2015 Palgrave Macmillan also became part of the newly merged company Springer Nature. Springer Nature is the world’s largest academic book publisher, publisher of the world’s highest impact journals and a pioneer in the field of open research. Springer Nature was formed in 2015 through the merger of Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Macmillan Education and Springer Science+Business Media.
