Leiden, The Netherlands – World Scientific Publishing and ACCUCOMS have reached an agreement to include journals from World Scientific in Aggregagent™. The highly regarded journals will mostly become part of the Physical Sciences collections, especially strengthening the collections in Physics & Astronomy and Mathematics.
With the signing of World Scientific, ACCUCOMS can offer content of 16 publishers via Aggregagent to libraries and consortia. Aggregagent now includes almost 400 journals, publishing over 18,500 articles annually. With the rapidly increasing amount of content, Aggregagent will soon be comparable to big deals from major publishers.
Mr. Max Phua, Managing Director of World Scientific, said “We are pleased to include a selection of World Scientific journals in the new Aggregagent subject collections, which allow us to be a part of a wider yet curated selection of complementary journals to the scientific community. I look forward to our collaboration.”
“World Scientific have an excellent reputation in the STM field, and we are happy to welcome several of their top-ranked journals into the Aggregagent collections. This development shows not only the strategic vision of World Scientific, but also the value of Aggregagent not only to Societies but to larger commercial publishers. A most excellent addition to Aggregagent!” said Simon Boisseau, Commercial Director at ACCUCOMS.
