After the founding of the publishing house in 1982, first philosophical and biological books were published along with dissertations. The scientific series „Palaeo Ichtyologica“ and „Münchner Geowissenschaftliche Abhandlungen“ soon followed a first popular scientific series „Wanderungen in die Erdgeschichte“, to provide scientists with a platform to present their results in a comprehensible form to a wider circle of readers.
Today, in addition to renowned journals such as „Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters“, the publishing program also features renowned academic serials, e.g. the „Rundgespräche der Kommission für Ökologie“, the „Handbook of Paleoichtyology“ and the „Handbook of Paleoherpetology“, well known textbooks for students, such as the „Paläontologie der Wirbeltiere (Paleontology of the Vertebrates)“, „Grundlagen der Phylogenetischen Systematik (The Principles of phylogenetic Systematics)“ or the „Leitfaden der Pollenbestimmung (Guide to the determination of Pollen)“. In addition to scientific literature and the efforts to present popular science content to a broader audience in a comprehensible form, the publishing program now includes children‘s books, novels, garden guides, museum guides and much more.
On a regular basis, the publishing house will also accept commissioned works which are not included in the publishing program and will process them with the same care, e.g. School reports, exhibition catalogs, postcards, posters and more.
