US The American Anthropological Association renews publishing agreement with Wiley - 10 Mar 2017

The American Anthropological Association (AAA) has renewed its publishing agreement with Wiley, continuing a decade long partnership.

Wiley will publish the AAA's portfolio of 23 anthropology journals, including American Anthropologist, American Ethnologist, and Medical Anthropology Quarterly. In addition, they will continue to publish, host, and invest in further developments for AnthroSource—the AAA's online portal. Relaunched in 2015, AnthroSource is the premier database of full-text anthropology articles, serving the research and teaching needs of scholars and practitioners in the United States and around the world.

The AAA Executive Board's decision to renew with Wiley was the result of an 18-month process centering on a detailed request for proposals and evaluation of many publisher submissions.

To support the AAA's mission of disseminating anthropological knowledge, Wiley will work with the Association to enhance the global circulation of its publications, including through free and reduced-price access programs in developing countries. Wiley will contribute sponsorship funds each year in support of Anthropology Day and will also make significant investments in and partner with the AAA to pursue initiatives that advance the Association's goals for publishing innovation. Additionally, AAA and Wiley will partner to develop a subject-heading taxonomy for anthropology, which will aid in classifying journal content in order to improve discoverability, enable tools to narrow search results, and power future enhancements for AnthroSource.

Publisher Springer Nature has signed memorandums of understanding (MOU) on strategic cooperation with Shanghai Jiaotong University, the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Beijing Union Medical College and Tsinghua University School of Medicine in Shanghai and Beijing this week. The signing of these MOUs is intended to assist the three universities in strengthening international cooperation and academic exchange, enhancing their capabilities in scientific research, and attracting international talent so that they can develop world-class majors and become the world-class universities.

In accordance with the MOUs, Springer Nature will hold Nature Conferences with the three universities to facilitate their communication and academic exchange with the international research community and increase the influence of their dominant disciplines globally. Springer Nature will cooperate with these universities in co-publishing journals and books to foster the dissemination of scientific research. The organisation will also provide Nature Masterclasses and other training courses to enable the universities' teachers and researchers to better develop the skills needed to write research papers that can transform their scientific research into academic papers that can be published in high-impact journals.

Springer Nature and its subsidiaries had collaborated with the three universities previously in journal and book publishing, research training, academic conferences, database subscriptions and in some other fields. The signing of the MOUs will deepen mutual collaboration, set up an overall framework for further cooperation and provide a package of tailored services to accurately respond to the needs of the universities in fulfilling their strategic goals for university and discipline development.
