Emerald acquires four journals from Troubador Publishing Limited


Emerald Group Publishing Limited is pleased to announce the acquisition of four new journals to complement its existing information and knowledge management portfolio and education titles


[UKPRwire, Tue Jun 26 2007] Emerald Group Publishing Limited is pleased to announce the acquisition of four new journals to complement its existing information and knowledge management portfolio and education titles. The four new journals are: Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society, Interactive Technology and Smart Education, International Journal of Pervasive Computing and Communications and International Journal of Web Information Systems.

Cathy Mostyn, Emerald’s Business Development Director said, “The Emerald portfolio features a number of established journals acquired from other publishers. Emerald is proud to include these prestigious titles for the quality and additional coverage they bring to the portfolio and the database”.

Troubador Publisher Jeremy Thompson adds: "This is a fantastic move for our journals, as they will now benefit from the far greater market presence of one of the UK's leading journals publishers. The academic journals market has shifted greatly in recent years, so much so that it had become evident to us that small publishers stood little chance in a market where libraries subscribe to hundreds of journals in packages from large publishers. So that our journal titles could move forward it was evident that a major publisher would be needed to give the titles the momentum they needed. We are delighted that Emerald has seen the potential that all our journal titles had, and has taken them all on."
