Elsevier Acquires Woodhead Publishing

WALTHAM, Massachusetts, August 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Integration expands Elsevier's books portfolio in key subject areas including materials science, engineering and food science

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced it has acquired Woodhead Publishing Limited, an award-winning, UK-based publisher known for its high-quality content in the fields of materials science, food science, engineering, energy & environmental technology, textile technology and biomedicine. The acquisition of Woodhead Publishing also includes Chandos Publishing, which is known for its strong publishing program in library information science and Asian studies.

"We are committed to improving research outcomes and researcher productivity," said Suzanne BeDell, Managing Director, Science & Technology Books, Elsevier. "The acquisition of Woodhead Publishing helps us to achieve this objective. Woodhead's global publishing program is complementary to Elsevier's books portfolio and Martin Woodhead and his staff are as committed to content quality as we are."

"After 24 years of building Woodhead Publishing into the successful business it is today, the time has come for me to pass it on to a larger publisher who can capitalize on over 1,500 published titles, a strong forward program, and our electronic presence," said Martin Woodhead, Managing Director of Woodhead Publishing. "I am very proud that Elsevier, a publisher I much admire for the quality of its publishing and with whom we are a natural fit, will maintain the same high standards of our publishing and take it to a new level both in print and electronic markets."

Woodhead Publishing was recognized for international achievement at last year's Independent Publishing Awards, sponsored by the London Book Fair, being called "active and innovative in whatever country it targets."
