Publishing and Foreign Rights
The Society of Swedish Literature in Finland (SLS) is a non-profit scholarly society founded in 1885. Its purpose is to disseminate knowledge about Finland’s Swedish-language culture. SLS publishes works of scholarship and nonfiction about the culture, language, society and history of Finland’s Swedish-speaking minority. Swedish is the Society’s principal language of publication. SLS also specializes in scholarly, annotated editions of works by literary authors and of historical source material such as letters, diaries and travel books. SLS is one of the leading publishers of critical editions in the Nordic region and is a pioneer in the development of digital publishing platforms for such editions.
SLS places great emphasis both on the editorial processing of its books and on their graphic design. The publisher’s motto – “Sustainable Publishing” – stands for a high level of scholarship and non-fiction writing, continuity over time, and environmental awareness in production. All publications have undergone peer review. Several of SLS’s authors have won national and international awards, and many titles have been acknowledged for their graphic design. Most of the books are richly illustrated, and a large share of the pictures come from SLS’s own extensive archives. A number of SLS’s titles reach the book market in Sweden through collaboration with Swedish publishers.
