Ingenta's Eleven: The Haworth Press and ten other publishers join IngentaConnect Amel Abourachid 07 Jun 2006 14:29 UTC
Dear colleagues, We thought some of you may be interested in the latest Ingenta publisher signings, announced today at the SSP Annual Conference in the US: Ingenta's Eleven: The Haworth Press and ten other publishers join IngentaConnect Ingenta, the technology provider which connects the publishing and information industries, today announced the latest 11 publishers to add their journals to the IngentaConnect platform, which provides subscription and pay-per-view access to nearly 10,000 scholarly e-journals. Prestigious US publisher The Haworth Press will take advantage of IngentaConnect's global distribution and visibility by adding their 226 journals to the platform, which will co-host them with Haworth's own site. President Bill Cohen described the arrangement as "epitomizing the 'third way' which is increasingly popular among scholarly publishers, who want both the autonomy and diversity of their own publications website, but also to capitalize on the ready-made audience offered by multi-publisher platforms. Ingenta is the most established of these, and with its larger market share was the obvious choice for us when we wanted to make our publications more widely available." Also in North America, the American Institute of Chemists, the Mathematical Association of America, and the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons have all chosen IngentaConnect as their online hosting partner, while the journal Surveying and Land Information Science will be added to the site by its co-publishers the National Society of Professional Surveyors, the American Association for Geodetic Surveying, and the Geographic and Land Information Society. In the UK, the Dental Protection Society, Engineering Integrity Society, International Seed Testing Association and University of Buckingham Press have all recently signed to place their journals online with IngentaConnect. Elsewhere, the South African Statistical Association and Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht are the latest publishers to join the service. IngentaConnect (www.ingentaconnect.com) now provides access to nearly 10,000 electronic journal, book and monograph titles and over 29,900 fax- and Ariel-delivered publications. The site receives up to 20 million users a month, and enables users to view full text via subscription and through a variety of different payment models such as library payment accounts, individual subscription sales and article pay-per-view access.
