Wiley-Blackwell is the international scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons. It was formed by the merger of John Wiley's Global Scientific, Technical, and Medical business with Blackwell Publishing, after Wiley took over the latter in 2007.[1]

As a learned society publisher, Wiley-Blackwell partners with around 750 societies and associations. It publishes nearly 1,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 1,500 new books annually in print and online, as well as databases, major reference works, and laboratory protocols. Wiley-Blackwell is based in Hoboken, New Jersey (United States) and has offices in many international locations including Boston, Oxford, Chichester, Berlin, Singapore, Melbourne, Tokyo, and Beijing, among others.

Wiley-Blackwell publishes in a diverse range of academic and professional fields, including in biology, medicine, physical sciences, technology, social science, and the humanities.[2]

Access to more than 1,500 journals, OnlineBooks, lab protocols, electronic major reference works and other online products published by Wiley-Blackwell is available through Wiley Online Library,[3] which replaced the previous platform, Wiley InterScience, in August 2010.

Blackwell Publishing history

Blackwell Publishing was formed by the 2001 merger of two Oxford-based academic publishing companies, Blackwell Science (founded 1939 as Blackwell Scientific Publishing) and Blackwell Publishers (founded 1922), which had their origins in the nineteenth century Blackwell's family bookshop and publishing business. The merger created the world's leading learned society publisher, partnered with 665 academic and professional societies. Blackwell published over 805 journals and 650 text and reference books in 2006, across a wide range of academic, medical, and professional subjects, and had 990 staff members with offices in the United States, UK, Australia, China, Denmark, Germany, Singapore and Japan.

The company identified its mission as an expert publisher creating long-term partnerships with its clients that enhanced learning, disseminated research, and improved the quality of professional practice. Blackwell Science launched online full-text service in 1999.

On November 17, 2006, John Wiley & Sons announced it had "entered into a definitive agreement to acquire" Blackwell Publishing.[4] The acquisition was completed in February 2007, at a purchase price of £572 million. Blackwell Publishing was merged into Wiley's Global Scientific, Technical, and Medical business to create Wiley-Blackwell.[1] From June 30, 2008, the journals previously on Blackwell Synergy are delivered through Wiley InterScience.[5]
