Taylor & Francis Group and Haworth Press Jennifer McMillan 19 Dec 2007 13:58 UTC
Taylor & Francis Group is delighted to welcome Haworth Press journals and books to its publishing portfolio following the acquisition of Haworth Press on September 14th, 2007. Haworth Press’ list of social, behavioral and environmental science titles are an excellent complement to the existing strengths of Routledge and Taylor & Francis in these areas. Our editorial team is very much looking forward to the continued development of the Haworth journal titles in these fields. Titles focussing on medicine will become part of the journal portfolio of our sister company, Informa Healthcare.* The Haworth list boasts a range of well-regarded library science journal titles. These will be merged with the Routledge imprint, and will continue to be nurtured as key resources for the information science community. The Haworth list is also particularly strong in the areas of social work and LBGT studies. Highlights of the list include Homosexual Studies, Journal of Social Service Research, and Social Work in Health Care. Our electronic platform, informaworld, will allow these titles to thrive in an online environment. Haworth’s Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, Bill Cohen, commented on the acquisition: “…in order to grow, Haworth needed a consistently creative internet platform that could compete successfully with other platforms of major houses. informaworld at Taylor & Francis was most attractive in this sense. It is a resplendent hosting service, interweaving core journals along with eBooks, abstract databases, and reference works of historic importance. The stability of a prodigious international publishing house also adds an important dimension in regard to digital permanency.” View a full list of Haworth Press journal titles at: http://www.haworthpress.com/journals/ Transferring your subscriptions We plan to transfer Haworth Press journal titles during the course of 2008, and will update subscribers throughout this process.
