'''Birkhäuser''' is a former [[Swiss]] [[publisher]] founded in 1879 by [[Emil Birkhäuser]]. It was acquired by [[Springer Science+Business Media]] in 1985. Today it is an [[imprint]] used by two companies in unrelated fields:
* Springer continues to publish science (particularly: history of science, geosciences, computer science) and mathematics books and journals under the Birkhäuser imprint (with a leaf logo) sometimes called Birkhäuser Science.<ref>{{cite web|url= |title=About us Journals, Academic Books & Online Media &#124; Birkhäuser | |date= |accessdate=2013-12-31}}</ref><ref name="Fatale">{{cite web|url= |title=Birkhäuser Verlag ist insolvent - buchreport - Nachrichten VerlageNachrichten aus der Buch- und Medienbranche, Marktanalysen und SPIEGEL- Bestseller | |language=German |date= |accessdate=2013-12-31}}</ref>
