De Gruyter to partner with the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland

The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland has selected De Gruyter as its partner for distributing its premiere journal publications, Mineralogical Magazine and Clay Minerals, starting in January 2016.  Both journals present peer-reviewed original research, are highly respected in the field, and have impressive impact factors. “These publications, when clustered with the American Mineralogist and Reviews in Mineralogy & Geochemistry, position De Gruyter as the distributor of much of the most important research material in the field,” says Alex Greene, Senior Editorial Director.

“The Mineralogical Society is pleased to partner with De Gruyter”, said Kevin Murphy, the Society’s Executive Director.  “This brings together a market leader in terms of mineralogical publishing, and a highly reputable marketing partner for society publishers. The partnership will provide increased visibility for the Mineralogical Society’s content around the globe from De Gruyter’s well-known journals platform, and help to make them available to an audience which is wider than the traditionally purely mineralogical subscriber base.“

“The Mineralogical Magazine and Clay Minerals are exceptionally strong publications in their respective fields and fit with our strategy for expansion in science, engineering, and medical publishing”, said Dr Anke Beck, Managing Director at De Gruyter. “We are pleased that this trust for these publications has been placed in us, and we look forward to a fruitful relationship with the Mineralogical Society.”

The publications will continue to be produced and be available from the society both on the web and in print, and will now also be available electronically from De Gruyter’s platform,
