The first company in the Hogrefe publishing group was founded in 1949 by Dr. Carl Jürgen Hogrefe, who published the first issue of the scientific journal “Psychologische Rundschau” (meaning “Psychological Review”) while still an assistant professor at the University of Göttingen, Germany. Then as now, we at Hogrefe remain convinced that only scientifically based knowledge can be the basis for creating relevant publications, instruments and services.
