Significant strengthening of SpringerOpen portfolio
In a move that will expand its open access offering, Springer Science+Business Media (Springer) has acquired twelve journals from Hindawi Publishing Corporation in an asset deal. The journals include seven titles published in cooperation with the European Association for Signal Processing, four mathematics journals and one in medicine. For a complete list of the journals, see below. The takeover of the twelve journals is scheduled for the end of March 2011. Hindawi will continue to publish approximately 200 other open access journals. This acquisition links complementary publishing programs and gives new momentum to both SpringerOpen and BioMed Central, Springer’s open access publishing units.
