De Gruyter Acquires bepress Journal Porfolio

The academic publisher De Gruyter and The Berkeley Electronic Press (bepress) announced that they reached an agreement for De Gruyter to acquire bepress’s journal portfolio. The agreement covers a total of 67 journals in the areas of law, business/economics, humanities, and natural sciences. bepress says it “is exiting the subscription-based journal publishing business because we believe we can have the greatest impact on scholarly communications by dedicating ourselves to enabling library-led publishing and research dissemination programs with Digital Commons.”

Berkeley Electronic Press was founded in 1999 by scholars as an alternative to existing academic publishers, and in particular their pricing policies. Since then, the press has succeeded in creating high-quality content, primarily as a result of founding their own journals and by attracting top-notch scholars.

De Gruyter will take on the journals with immediate effect. They will be integrated into the existing editorial offices, and personnel will be added as needed. The subject area business/economics, which was previously not part of the De Gruyter portfolio, will be under the publishing supervision of the Law Department.
