We empower people with knowledge



Wydawnictwo Naukowe PWN was founded in 1951. We are celebrating our 70th anniversary in 2021.

PWN began by publishing textbooks and academic scripts. Over the next few years, we obtained the reputation of a general publisher whose titles were a must in every Polish home.


PWN began working with foreign publishers in 1956. This gave our readers access to the latest scientific achievements around the world, and the translations we published contributed significantly to the advancement of scientific thought in Poland. PWN also assumed responsibility for popularizing Polish science internationally by publishing Polish scholarly works in co-editions with the world’s largest scientific publishers.


The most significant publishing endeavors in Poland at the turn of the 21st century are being undertaken under the aegis of Wydawnictwo PWN (Polish Scientific Publishers) – the publication of the New PWN Universal Encyclopedia, the Great PWN Encyclopedia, thematic encyclopedias, and a series of great Polish dictionaries and foreign language dictionaries published in conjunction with such prestigious publishing houses as Oxford University Press.

PWN was privatized in 1991, and the Luxembourg Cambridge Holding Group (LCHG), an international investment group, became the major shareholder in 1992. Following further changes, PWN was restructured as a joint-stock company, Wydawnictwo Naukowe PWN SA, in 1997.

Over the following years, Wydawnictwo Naukowe PWN created a capital group of publishing and distribution companies.

The PWN Group has consistently been realizing the guiding mission of an authoritative, reliable and up-to-date source of information that meets all its customers’ needs from the very outset.

In 2022 PWN Scientific Publishers merged with PZWL Medical Publishing House and PWN School Publishing House creating one company. PWN Scientific Publishers together with OSDW Azymut and ePWN fulfil the mission of the PWN Group.

Group’s offer is diverse – starting with traditional paper books as well as distribution & logistics through education platforms, webinars for professionals and the first in Poland virtual reading room for institutional users – IBUK Libra. PWN also offers publications in the field of broadly understood computer science, including publications on cybersecurity, programming, blockchain, testing, SCRUM and Agile, as well as artificial intelligence.
