Several former publishing houses have become imprints of De Gruyter. "De Gruyter Mouton" (formerly "Mouton de Gruyter") was purchased by de Gruyter in 1977. It was originally known as Mouton Publishers and based in The Hague. The imprint specializes in the field of linguistics and publishes academic journals, research monographs, reference works, multimedia publications, and bibliographies. K. G. Saur Verlag, based in Munich, was acquired in 2006 and retains the imprint "De Gruyter Saur". It specializes in reference information for libraries. De Gruyter acquired the journals of Berkeley Electronic Press in 2011. The Swiss publisher Birkhäuser became part of De Gruyter after its bankruptcy in 2012.[2] In addition, De Gruyter acquired Versita in 2012, an open access publisher.[3] Since 2014 Versita is fully integrated into the imprint "De Gruyter Open". In 2013 De Gruyter acquired two academic publishers from Cornelsen Verlag: Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag and Akademie Verlag.[4]
