Scholarly Publishing Platforms: Publishing Technology Adds 10 New Agreements Including 4 With Chinese Publishers

From the PT News Release:

In a series of recent signings, content from six academic publishers is now open to the ingentaconnect network of over 25,000 libraries, including James Nicholas Publishers, Paris Legal Publishers, the Institute of Noise Control Engineering, Science International Corporation, the Association for Perioperative Practice and Rosenberg & Sellier Editori.

Alliances have also been formed with several Chinese content providers to extend their reach outside of China, including three of the country’s largest publishers. China Publishing Group, Guangdong Publishing Group, Hebei Publishing & Media Group and Qingdao Publishing Group—recently awarded the First Ranked Press in China and the National Key Cultural Export Enterprise honour by the government—will soon command access to an international audience of academics and researchers.

With significant upgrades and development of the platform’s core technology currently underway and user testing of e-journal discovery, access and readership in progress, the ingentaconnect portal remains the largest and most comprehensive gateway to international content for the academic community.
