Wiley's Global Research business is a provider of content-enabled solutions to improve outcomes in research, education and professional practice with online tools, journals, books, databases, reference works and laboratory protocols. With strengths in every major academic, scientific and professional field, and strong brands including Wiley Blackwell and Wiley VCH, Wiley proudly partners with over 800 prestigious societies representing two million members.
Through Wiley Online Library, we provide online access to a broad range of content: over 4 million articles from 1,500 journals, 9,000+ books, and many reference works and databases. Access to abstracts and searching is free, full content is accessible through licensing agreements, and large portions of the content are provided free or at nominal cost to nations in the developing world through partnerships with organizations such as HINARI, AGORA, and OARE.
This next generation online service was launched in August 2010, replacing Wiley InterScience. Wiley Online Library features an easy-to-use interface, provides intuitive navigation, enhanced discoverability, and a range of personalization and alerting options. The development of Wiley Online Library does not stop at launch; the site is being constantly updated, and new features and functions are being added to keep up with the rapidly changing world of online research and learning. The new site is built on technology that will enable us to introduce new features faster and adapt to the future publishing environment.
Future growth in our Global Research business will continue to reflect increased worldwide demand for research information, new products, and the opportunities provided by our migration from print to electronic formats, with the evolution of product and business model alike keyed closely to customer need.
