Wiley-VCH, a part of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. since 1996, was founded in 1921 by two learned societies, which later merged to become the German Chemical Society (GDCh), and a trade association. Based in Germany, Wiley-VCH publishes science, technical and specialist information in print and electronic form (books, journals, and data collections) for an international audience of researchers and professionals. Today, the main subjects are chemistry, materials science, life science, and physics, but also extend to business, computing and related fields. While the main language of publication is English, Wiley-VCH also offers a substantial German-language program servicing the needs of the local markets.
From the very beginning, Wiley-VCH has co-operated closely with both the GDCh and a continuously growing number of national and international scientific societies and associations, including ChemPubSocEurope (currently comprising 14 European chemical societies), ACES (its counterpart in Asia), the German Physical Society DPG, the German Research Foundation DFG, EMBO, and many more. Wiley-VCH is honored to be the publisher of Angewandte Chemie, which is owned by the GDCh and has been known for years as the world?s #1 chemistry journal publishing original research and reviews. Other publications held in the highest esteem among readers, authors and librarians include such journals as Advanced Materials and Proteomics, but also numerous print and online books and encyclopedias.
Close collaboration with our society partners and the world?s best authors, including many Nobel laureates, will ensure that the name of Wiley-VCH will continue to stand for outstanding excellence in publishing for years to come.
