Science: CRC Press Launches “Featured Authors” Portal, Aggregates STM Author Resources for Researchers, Librarians and Others

From a CRC Press News Release:

CRC Press is pleased to announce the launch of Featured Authors, a new web portal that connects researchers, academics, librarians and book buyers with authoritative authors in their fields.

Available at www.crcpress.com/authors or by clicking on the “Featured Authors” tab on the CRC Press homepage, Featured Authors makes books, bios, events and social media information readily accessible to online audiences at no cost.


By aggregating key author and contributor resources for research, academic, librarian and professional audiences, Featured Authors offers a central location for the latest information on each author’s current research, paper presentations, conference attendance, photos and videos, and award information as well as current blog, email and social networking contact information.

For authors, Featured Authors is easy to join and requires minimal maintenance. Once live, CRC Press author profiles are engaging, visual web pages that highlight each author’s work and offer regular updates regarding upcoming speaking engagements, conferences, new affiliations, credentials, awards, and other news relevant to their unique audiences.
