Hoboken, NJ—March 11, 2013—Sixty-six journals will join John Wiley & Sons, Inc., a global provider of content-enabled solutions in areas of scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly research; professional development; and education, in 2013. The titles include 52 journals moving to Wiley from other publishers or self-publication, and 14 new titles, of which eight are open access. The titles joining Wiley represent relationships with over 30 societies and associations.
Included in the 52 titles moving to Wiley are 17 journals from the American Geophysical Union, including Journal of Geophysical Research, Water Resources Research and Reviews of Geophysics. This year also sees several other partnerships such as with the American College of Clinical Pharmacology on their titles Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development and The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology; with the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior to publish Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior; with the Obesity Society to publish Obesity; and with the British Educational Research Association to publish the British Educational Research Journal as well as to launch a new title, Review of Education.
2013 sees the launch of a new title in the Advanced Materials family, Advanced Optical Materials, and Stat, an online-only, rapid communication research journal in partnership with the International Statistical Institute. Wiley also acquired six well-respected newsletters for nonprofits from Stevenson, Inc., including The Major Gifts Report, The Volunteer Management Report and Successful Fundraising.
Wiley's open access journal portfolio will grow significantly this year, with ten journals confirmed, including Physiological Reports (in partnership with The Physiological Society and the American Physiological Society), Clinical Case Reports and Immunity, Inflammation and Disease (both supported by several societies). At least a further three new open access titles are expected to launch within the year, and two existing titles switched to an open access model earlier this year. These new journals will bring Wiley's number of open access journals to a total of at least 24 by the end of 2013.
