Company Overview

Britannica was founded in Edinburgh in 1768 at the height of the period of European history known as the “Enlightenment”. Its aim was to publish clear, current and correct information, based on a scientific approach to knowledge.


Today Encyclopædia Britannica’s ethos remains the same and the company continues to be recognised as one of the world’s most respected brands. In the annual Superbrands survey of 2012, Britannica was one of only eight media reference companies to make the top 500 brands in the UK and was the only one to be listed in the top 50. At number 30, Britannica was voted more respectable than Facebook, Wikipedia and Microsoft.


Encyclopædia Britannica (UK) Ltd is a subsidiary of Encyclopædia Britannica Inc. who are leading providers of learning and knowledge products. Britannica is proud to be one of the world's most trusted sources of information.


In March 2012, after 244 years of continuous publication, Encyclopædia Britannica announced that it will cease production of its revered 32-volume print set to concentrate on its digital and mobile editions. Since then, Britannica has successfully made the transition from a traditional publisher to a fully operational digital company.
