Wiley’s partnership with China dates back to 1979, when it became the first American publisher active in the country. Today, the company has offices in Beijing and Shanghai, and its collaboration extends across the research, education and professional training sectors.
In addition to publishing China’s top research in its over 1600 scientific journals, Wiley has organized hundreds of journal author workshops to build research and publication skills among China’s next generation of researchers. Wiley also licenses Simplified Chinese rights directly to Chinese publishers, while pursuing an aggressive program of publishing English language versions of Chinese book copyrights globally. In the professional development sector, Wiley is working with partners to build and distribute corporate training programs in career and leadership development as well as programs in fields such as finance.
“We celebrate China’s enormous achievements in becoming a global publishing and media leader and are honored to have been a partner in this effort for over 30 years,” said Mark Allin, CEO at Wiley. “We look forward to working closely with our Chinese partners to ensure continued growth and innovation in content and solution services, both in China and globally.”
