Elsevier Acquires Woodhead Publishing Titles

Elsevier added Woodhead Publishing Limited to its publications group on Aug. 13. Woodhead’s book program is designed to enhance Elsevier’s publications portfolio, offering quality content to researchers to improve productivity.

The U.K.-based publisher offers a range of topics, from food science and engineering to textile technology and mathematics; its Chandos Publishing imprint specializes in library and information science titles, which will be added to Elsevier’s STM titles totaling about 20,000 books.

“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,” says Martin Woodhead, managing director.

Both companies have existing ebook programs: Woodhead Publishing Online has about 1,000 ebooks and Chandos Publishing Online offers 330-plus titles, all of which join Elsevier’s online store with more than 20,000 ebooks.
