RSC Acquires The Merck Index

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) announced that The Merck Index will join the publishing portfolio of the Society. In buying the rights to the iconic reference book, the RSC gains a globally used reference tool with a 120-year history. The RSC already plans significant development of The Merck Index online, and it will continue to develop and update The Merck Index to provide a valuable, trusted, and relevant resource for scientists and researchers. In the agreement with Merck, the Royal Society of Chemistry will take over publication by launching the 15th edition, due out in April. The new edition has been extensively revised and updated.

James Milne, RSC Publishing executive director said: “The Merck Index is a quality product with a peerless pedigree but, being familiar to the scientific community worldwide, it is also emblematic of our organisation’s rapidly-expanding international presence and influence.”

The single-volume encyclopaedia—also known as “Chemistry’s Constant Companion,” and first published in 1889—is about to publish its 15th edition. It has been considered the standard chemistry reference work for generations of professionals and has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide.
