I have a list of ca. 300 (academic) publishers entailing their commonly used names, such as Taylor & Francis.
There are two problems now:
1.) Imprints: Some are imprints of other publishers. For instance, Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis.
2.) Names: Sometimes I am unsure about the correct name. For example, is it Springer, Springer Publishing, Springer Science+Business Media or Springer Nature (whereby the latter might be an imprint of Springer)?
Thus, my question is: Are there any open data that could disambiguate names of publishers, show (persistent?) identifiers, and detect relations between imprints and their overarching companies?
This would greatly facilitate the task (in comparison to manual research).
