IHS and Wiley Enter Strategic Partnership to Deliver Engineering eBooks, Reference Works and Databases

06:00 EDT Wednesday, August 28, 2013

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (Business Wire) -- IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of information and analytics, today announced a new partnership agreement with John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa and JWb), a global provider of knowledge and knowledge-based services in the areas of research, professional development, and education. The new agreement allows IHS to resell thousands of Wiley's scientific and engineering titles as part of IHS's subscription-based offerings on a limited exclusive basis to its global industrial customers.

Under the partnership, IHS will add Wiley content to IHS's expansive collection of 90 million technical documents spanning engineering standards and related industry and technical knowledge. IHS gives engineers, scientists, researchers, product management and marketing professionals advanced research and knowledge discovery capabilities and a single point-of-access to the most extensive collection of technical knowledge, allowing them to make fast, informed decisions across the product lifecycle.

IHS will resell the following from Wiley as part of IHS subscription-based offerings:

  • over 2,000 Wiley eBooks such as the Mechanical Engineers' Handbook, Peterson's Stress Concentration Factors, Taguchi's Quality Engineering Handbook and Uhlig's Corrosion Handbook
  • select Wiley Global Research databases including the Wiley Database of Polymer Properties
  • several major reference works including Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology and Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, both mainstays for chemists, biochemists, and engineers at academic, industrial, and government institutions.

The integration of Wiley content with IHS content collections and IHS' tools to accelerate research and knowledge discovery eliminates the need for engineers and other technical professionals to have to search across multiple unique data sources and systems with multiple logins. As part of this agreement, IHS and Wiley will work together strategically in the areas of product development, marketing and editorial activities.

“We are excited to be partnering with one of the world's largest publishers for professional and scholarly societies,” said Anurag Gupta, ‎executive vice president, Global Strategy, Products and Operations, IHS. “Our customers depend on IHS for single-point access to critical information, such as engineering standards. These same customers have been asking us to enhance our solution to contain single-point access to related technical knowledge. Our relationship with Wiley now allows us to do just that.”

“Our partnership with IHS enhances our ability to serve the world's research and technical communities by offering world-class knowledge discovery capabilities that promote greater user engagement with our scientific and technical research,” said Jon Walmsley, Wiley's vice president and managing director of Professional Practice and Learning. “We are excited to be working so closely with IHS as we further develop our strategic partnership in product development and editorial content creation.”
