Partnership: IHS to Resell Thousands of Wiley’s Scientific and Engineering Titles
IHS today announced a new partnership agreement with John Wiley & Sons.
The new agreement allows IHS to resell thousands of Wiley’s scientific and engineering titles as part of IHS’s subscription-based offerings on a limited exclusive basis to its global industrial customers.
Under the partnership, IHS will add Wiley content to IHS’s collection of 90 million technical documents spanning engineering standards and related industry and technical knowledge.
IHS will resell the following from Wiley as part of IHS subscription-based offerings:
- over 2,000 Wiley eBooks such as the Mechanical Engineers’ Handbook, Peterson’s Stress Concentration Factors, Taguchi’s Quality Engineering Handbook and Uhlig’s Corrosion Handbook
- select Wiley Global Research databases including the Wiley Database of Polymer Properties
- several major reference works including Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology and Ullmann’s Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, both mainstays for chemists, biochemists, and engineers at academic, industrial, and government institutions.
The integration of Wiley content with IHS content collections and IHS’ tools to accelerate research and knowledge discovery eliminates the need for engineers and other technical professionals to have to search across multiple unique data sources and systems with multiple logins. As part of this agreement, IHS and Wiley will work together strategically in the areas of product development, marketing and editorial activities.
