Leiden, The Netherlands – ACCUCOMS is pleased to announce that Aggregagent™ now includes journals from IWA Publishing and Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). Publications of IWA Publishing, leading international publisher of water, wastewater and environmental content will form a key part of the Water Science and Technology Collection while publications from RCGP will further strengthen our medical collections. In both cases, their titles will also be included in other relevant Aggregagent subject collections.
With the inclusion of titles from IWA Publishing and RCGP, ACCUCOMS can offer almost 500 titles, published by 24 publishers. Recently, ACCUCOMS also reached a major milestone in the development and rollout of Aggregagent, as it successfully created a single library license agreement that all Aggregagent publishers have agreed on, allowing ACCUCOMS to rapidly enter into agreements with libraries on the publishers’ behalf.
ACCUCOMS has experience working with both publishers, representing them directly, through ISPG, and having conducted many telesales campaigns on their behalf. Their titles will add a valuable contribution to the collections already available in Aggregagent.
“Aggregagent has innovative sales models which offer libraries the flexibility to tailor collections to their needs and budget.” said Rod Cookson, Managing Director at IWA Publishing. “We look forward to working with Aggregagent to further extend the global reach of IWA Publishing’s journals.”
Rachel Mosier from the Royal College of General Practitioner commented “Aggregagent seems like a perfect solution to help us expand into new territories that might otherwise be difficult to enter. Being grouped with similar high-quality Society content will also give us the opportunity to negotiate with key global Consortia for the first time.”
“We are delighted to have IWA Publishing and Royal College of General Practitioners on board with Aggregagent! The platform where societies join forces to offer top -quality collections to libraries and consortia globally.” Adds Pinar Erzin, Founder and President of ACCUCOMS “We have worked very closely with both IWA and RCGP within the ISPG collection as well as other projects we ran on their behalf in the past. We are proud to see the best content coming together, best societies joining forces under the global sales outreach, excellent back-office and customer support capabilities of ACCUCOMS. Our mission is to give societies and university presses an entrance to the markets and buyers they couldn’t reach before. We are grateful for the belief we receive from renown societies like IWA and RCGP. We are committed to make collaboration amongst publishers easier, purchasing administration and access for libraries less complicated and bring high quality content to more readers worldwide.”
