Publishers’ Group Announces Business Partners

The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) has appointed Swets Blackwell and Extenza, divisions of Royal Swets & Zeitlinger, as its business partners for consortia and multi-site sales. ALPSP is the international trade association for not-for-profit publishers. It has 240 members in 21 countries.

Swets Blackwell will be the global sales and marketing channel for the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection, as well as providing access for subscribing organizations through SwetsWise. Swets will also provide back-office customer service and administrative support both to libraries and to participating publishers. Extenza will offer a complete journal hosting service for those participating publishers that require it. This is not an exclusive deal; customers are free to use other agents.

Sally Morris, secretary-general of ALPSP, said: "It is very difficult for smaller publishers with just a few journals, however high quality these are, to break into the consortia market. We believe that by working together through the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection, our members can overcome this problem and reach additional customers. We are extremely pleased to be working with Swets Blackwell on this major initiative."
