Founded in 1683 in Leiden, the Netherlands, Brill (known as E. J. Brill, Koninklijke Brill, Brill Academic Publishers) is an international academic publisher and is listed on Euronext, Amsterdam. With offices in Leiden and Boston (MA), Brill today publishes more than 100 journals and around 500 new books and reference works each year.

As of October 1, 2006 the publishing activities of Transnational Publishers have joined the International Law program of Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, Brill’s imprint for publications in the area of international law. Brill will continue to publish this list under the name of Martinus Nijhoff Publishers.


In the 19th century, Brill was often called upon to print books prepared by other publishers, who felt Brill had the highest-quality Arabic fonts. Brill published the "Encyclopaedia of Islam" (in German, French, and English), first in 1913, and later in 1987; they also published many journals on Islamic and Biblical studies, and critical text for many manuscripts of the Middle Ages.
