[Fwd: Cell Press bought by Elsevier] (Frank Norman) Stephen Clark 04 May 1999 13:03 UTC
This message was originally listed on lis-serials. With his
permission, I am reposting his message, since a number of serials folks in
this country will also be interesed in it.
Cell Press, independent publisher of _Cell_ and three other highly
respected titles, has been bought by Elsevier.
I haven't seen this announced widely, and have only just spotted it
myself in_Nature_ , 15th April 1999, vol 398 p. 551.
"The independent biweekly journal, Cell, previously owned by
Benjamin Lewin, has been bought by the Dutch company Elsevier
Science, in a strategic move that the company says is aimed at
consolidating its electronic publishing activities in life sciences."
We await the consolidation with interest...(not to say trepidation).
