Hoboken, N.J.— November 27, 2013— John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced a new publishing partnership with the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). From January 2014, Wiley will publish the society's newsmagazine, ACEP News, which provides the latest in clinical and industry news for emergency physicians throughout the United States.

The title's breaking news stories, coverage of medical meetings and expert perspectives are read by more than 37,000 emergency physicians, including 32,000 ACEP members. Reflecting the ever-changing needs of emergency physicians, ACEP News will be renamed ACEP Now with a new editorial direction and design, effective with the January 2014 issue.
ACEP Now will be edited by Kevin Klauer, Director of the Center for Emergency Medical Education and the Chief Medical Officer for Emergency Medicine Physicians, Ltd., Canton, Ohio. Dr. Klauer is an assistant clinical professor at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and he currently serves as ACEP Council Speaker.
Launched as ACEP News in 1981, ACEP Now will contain the latest in emergency medicine research, news and industry issues, along with updates on recent or upcoming society-sponsored programs, activities and educational opportunities.
Wiley will distribute ACEP Now to all members of ACEP, as well as members of the Society of Emergency Medicine Physicians Assistants.
