Fiscal Year 2011 Highlights

  • Global STMS revenue increased 4% on a currency neutral basis, driven by increased journal subscriptions, new society journal business, and digital book growth.
  • Continued to strengthen society relationships, with 37 new journals signed in FY2011, 100 journal contracts renewed or extended, and only four journal contracts not renewed.
  • Launched Wiley Online Library, one of the world’s broadest and deepest multidisciplinary collections of online resources, providing access to millions of articles, thousands of journals and books, and hundreds of reference works, laboratory protocols, and databases. Within months of its launch, the site had become the second-most-visited academic publishing Web site in the world.
  • Led all major publishers with the highest percentage of journals (69%) that have an Impact Factor — a measurement of how frequently peer-reviewed journals are cited by researchers and, therefore, a reflection of the journal’s influence. Thirty-six Wiley journals ranked first in their subject categories.
  • In collaboration with international professional and scholarly society partners, launched Wiley Open Access, a program of peer-reviewed journals in the life and biomedical sciences that are available to read, download, and share for free immediately upon publication, and introduced a range of new, funded business models to enable publication in open access format.
  • Launched the Wiley Chinese Scholars Network to support Chinese authors in the social sciences looking to publish their work in English-language journals.
  • Launched new mobile applications (SEE VIDEO), accessible via several devices, for selected health science journals, allowing for the mobile delivery of article listings and the creation of a “reading list” of desired articles, available from the user’s desktop via Wiley Online Library.
  • Partnered with CECity.com, the leading provider of cloud-based quality reporting, performance improvement, and lifelong learning platforms for the healthcare industry, to develop initiatives in several healthcare specialties.
  • Partnered with the British Psychological Society — the second-largest psychological society in the world, with some 50,000 members — to publish 11 journals on its behalf, and with the Association of American Geographers to publish, online and in 15 print volumes, the International Encyclopedia of Geography, intended to be the definitive reference work in its field.
  • Increased backfile sales 31% over fiscal year 2010, with strong showings in the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
