Mergers and acquisitions
The ARL and the Information Access Alliance are commissioning a new website that lists mergers and acquisitions among academic publishers, The Academic Publishing Industry: A Story of Merger and Acquisition. The site was developed by Mary H. Munroe, Associate Dean, Collections and Technical Services at Northern Illinois University.
By the by, publisher Taylor & Francis announced at the beginning of the month its planned merger with British trade publisher Informa Group. A few months ago, Taylor & Francis acquired Marcel Dekker.
