The Royal Society of Chemistry and Portland Press, the wholly-owned publishing arm of the Biochemical Society, have agreed a partnership enabling the Royal Society of Chemistry to sell Portland Press journals content.
Speaking from the Frankfurt Book Fair, our commercial director, Dan Dyer said: "I am excited by the opportunities this announcement presents to both the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Biochemical Society.
"With the strategic alliance of the two societies, our customers will benefit by having a single sales contact to discuss all their chemistry and biochemistry content requirements.
"Working collaboratively in this way will benefit the whole community, by extending our content offering into each other's respective markets."
Professor Richard Reece, Chair of Portland Press Board commented: "Portland Press is dedicated to promoting and sharing scientific research, as such I am delighted that our journals will be exposed to a wider market.
"We can continue to further our aim to offer the best service to the librarian community, whilst increasing the dissemination of our published content to researchers."
Dr Niamh O'Connor Director of Publishing, Portland Press added: "This aids achievement of the Biochemical Society’s strategic objective to further develop international links and networks, supporting scientists to share their work on a global scale".
