For 200 years, Wiley has endeavored to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve by publishing textbooks that have defined fields, pioneering research articles, and must-have content and services.
While celebrating the Company’s bicentennial, we look forward, with great anticipation, to Wiley’s continued growth and evolution. It is fitting to envision what may lie ahead as we enter our third century. As a publisher with a mission to share the knowledge and understanding of our authors with audiences around the world, we thought it would be appropriate to ask some of them to share their observations on the future direction of their fields.
A diverse group of authors responded with essays describing their vision, several of which are included in this Report; the entire collection is available on www.wiley.com/go/bicentennial. We hope the views of these authors will stimulate thought and discussion.
While no one can predict the future with certainty, contemplation of the possibilities sparks imagination and spurs innovation. As Belgian physicist, Nobel laureate chemist, and Wiley author Ilya Prigogine said, “The future is uncertain… but this uncertainty is at the very heart of human creativity.”
