Leiden, The Netherlands – ACCUCOMS and Wageningen Academic Publishers, an independent STM publisher in the field of Life Sciences, have signed an agreement to include seven journals in ACCUCOMS’ Aggregagent. With the addition of these titles, there are now 11 publishers within the ALPSP Collections in Aggregagent.
As of May 2017, ALPSP and ACCUCOMS announced a partnership to reinstate sales services as a benefit of an ALPSP membership. Members can opt to have their journals included in a series of ALPSP Collections available for purchase by libraries, in addition to the broad and narrow subject classifications of Aggregagent. ALPSP Collections now contain content from 11 publishers, including more than 340 titles. In addition to the complete collection, subject-related ALPSP Collections are also formed offering librarians flexibility in purchasing specific content.
Mike Jacobs, Managing Director at Wageningen Academic Publishers said, “We are pleased to be partnering with ACCUCOMS for our quality journals in the interdisciplinary fields of Animal & Human Health and Food & Feed. By including our titles in the Aggregagent collections, we can increase the reach of our journals by offering a convenient and cost-effective purchase option to institutions interested in acquiring relevant content in larger bundles.”
“Wageningen Academic Publishers is a publisher that fits well in our ALPSP Life Sciences Collection and other Aggregagent collections in the field of Life Sciences. Beneficial Microbes and World Mycotoxin Journal are well established and highly relevant titles for researchers in these sciences” says ACCUCOMS’ Commercial Director Egon Menardi, delighted with the new agreement. “With Journal of Insects as Food and Feed, launched in 2015, Wageningen Academic also publishes a promising new journal in a rapidly developing field of research.”
