    Achieving impact outside of the academy is a challenge, but there’s growing commitment from societies and publishers to find ways to reach beyond. In collaboration with the Association for Learned & Professional Society Publishers, our latest whitepaper digs into recent studies on science communication.

    History

    John Wiley and Sons was founded in 1807 and is the oldest independent publishing house in the United States. As time and progress moved along, our books did too — from Thomas Jefferson’s personal library to the Library of Congress, to institutions around the world, and then to the world wide web. From our start as a tiny print shop in New York, we grew to meet the needs of authors, educators, students, researchers, and professionals in every corner of the globe, adding digital solutions to quality content. Today, our books, journals, reference works, and databases are shared with millions.

     

    Wiley and its acquired companies have published the works of more than 490 Nobel Laureates in all categories for which the prize is awarded. With the February 2007 acquisition of Blackwell Publishing, Wiley became the largest publisher for professional and scholarly societies.

     

    Above all we recognize continuous improvement as fundamental to success and growth in a digital world. We are committed to continuing to shape our future by redefining and extending the ways in which we can better serve our authors, our library customers, and society partners.

     

     

     

     

    Transfer Code of Practice

    Wiley endorses the latest version of the NISO Transfer Code of Practice. The Code outlines “best practice” for the transfer of digital content files, subscription lists, and other journal assets during a change in publisher, publishing platform, or owner.

     

    As an endorsing publisher and using commercially-reasonable efforts, Wiley commits to meeting the standards of the code in all journal transfers we are involved.
