“Royal Swets & Zeitlinger proudly celebrates its 110th anniversary. Adriaan Swets and Heinrich Zeitlinger opened the doors to their business, a small bookshop in Amsterdam specializing in new and antiquarian scientific books, on September 26 1901.

In the mechanics of publishing, there are two main parts, one is the content itself, and the other is the author. Recognizing the scholar behind the content is just as important as the material itself. For the fourth year, IGI Global, an information science and technology publisher, is recognizing some of the top researchers in the field. The annual ‘Excellence in Research Journal Awards’ honors innovative research and outstanding scholarship within IGI Global’s prestigious journal collection. The criteria considered when selecting winners include: contribution to the field; originality of the research; practicality of research/results; quality of writing; rigor of the research; and substantive research and methodology.
Project MUSE is pleased to announce that 12 more journals have been added to the MUSE collection for 2012 and join the 25 titles previously confirmed as joining MUSE for the 2012 journal subscription year. MUSE expects to announce the final title additions for 2012 in the coming weeks.
