{{short description|Publishing house}}

}}Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group is an independent publishing house founded in 1949. Under several imprints, the company offers scholarly books for the academic market, as well as trade books. Rowman & Littlefield is the world's largest publisher in museum studies. The company also owns the book distributing company National Book Network based in Lanham, Maryland.


The current company took shape when University Press of America acquired Rowman & Littlefield in 1988 and took the Rowman & Littlefield name for the parent company. Since 2013, there is also an affiliated company based in London, UK called Rowman & Littlefield International which is editorially independent and publishes only academic books in Philosophy, Politics & International Relations and Cultural Studies.The company sponsors the Rowman & Littlefield Award in Innovative Teaching, the only national teaching award in political science given in the United States, which is awarded annually by the American Political Science Association for people whose innovations had moved political science pedagogy forward.WEB,weblink Professor Van Vechten Named to Receive 2008 Roman {{black, (sic), & Littlefield Award |publisher=American Political Science Association |accessdate=2008-07-12 |date=2008-07-12}}
