Publishing is the activity of making information, literature, music, software and other content available to the public for sale or for free. [1] Traditionally, the term refers to the distribution of printed works, such as books, newspapers, and magazines. With the advent of digital information systems, the scope has expanded to include electronic publishing such as ebooks, academic journals, micropublishing, websites, blogs, video game publishing, and the like.

Publishing may produce private, club, commons or public goods and may be conducted as a commercial, public, social or community activity. [2] The commercial publishing industry ranges from large multinational conglomerates such as Bertelsmann, RELX, Pearson and Thomson Reuters [3] to thousands of small independents. It has various divisions such as: trade/retail publishing of fiction and non-fiction, educational publishing (k-12) and academic and scientific publishing. [4] Publishing is also undertaken by governments, civil society and private companies for administrative or compliance requirements, business, research, advocacy or public interest objectives. [5] This can include annual reports, research reports, market research, policy briefings and technical reports. Self-publishing has become very common.

"Publisher" can refer to a publishing company or organization, or to an individual who leads a publishing company, imprint, periodical or newspaper.

Wiley was established in 1807 when Charles Wiley opened a print shop in Manhattan. The company was the publisher of 19th century American literary figures like James Fenimore Cooper, Washington Irving, Herman Melville, and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as of legal, religious, and other non-fiction titles. The firm took its current name in 1865. Wiley later shifted its focus to scientific, technical, and engineering subject areas, abandoning its literary interests. [3]

Charles Wiley's son John (born in Flatbush, New York, 4 October 1808 died in East Orange, New Jersey, 21 February 1891) took over the business when his father died in 1826. The firm was successively named Wiley, Lane & Co., then Wiley & Putnam, and then John Wiley. The company acquired its present name in 1876, when John's second son William H. Wiley joined his brother Charles in the business. [3] [4]

Through the 20th century, the company expanded its publishing activities, the sciences, and higher education. [3]

In 1989, Wiley acquired the life science publisher Liss. [5]

In 1996, Wiley acquired the German technical publisher VCH. [6]

In 1997, Wiley acquired the professional publisher Van Nostrand Reinhold from Thomson Learning. [7]

In 1999, Wiley acquired the professional publisher Jossey-Bass from Pearson. [8]

Wiley marked its bicentennial in 2007. In conjunction with the anniversary, the company published Knowledge for Generations: Wiley and the Global Publishing Industry, 1807-2007, depicting Wiley's role in the evolution of publishing against a social, cultural, and economic backdrop. Wiley has also created an online community called Wiley Living History, offering excerpts from Knowledge for Generations and a forum for visitors and Wiley employees to post their comments and anecdotes.

High-growth and emerging markets Edit

In December 2010, Wiley opened an office in Dubai. [10] Wiley established publishing operations in India in 2006 (though it has had a sales presence since 1966), and has established a presence in North Africa through sales contracts with academic institutions in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. [11] On April 16, 2012, the company announced the establishment of Wiley Brasil Editora LTDA in São Paulo, Brazil, effective May 1, 2012. [12]

Strategic acquisition and divestiture Edit

Wiley's scientific, technical, and medical business was expanded by the acquisition of Blackwell Publishing in February 2007 for US$1.12 billion , its largest purchase to that time. [13] [14] The combined business, named Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly (also known as Wiley-Blackwell), publishes, in print and online, 1,400 scholarly peer-reviewed journals and an extensive collection of books, reference works, databases, and laboratory manuals in the life and physical sciences, medicine and allied health, engineering, the humanities, and the social sciences. Through a backfile initiative completed in 2007, 8.2 million pages of journal content have been made available online, a collection dating back to 1799. Wiley-Blackwell also publishes on behalf of about 700 professional and scholarly societies among them are the American Cancer Society (ACS), for which it publishes Cancer, the flagship ACS journal the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and the American Anthropological Association. Other journals published include Angewandte Chemie, Advanced Materials, Hepatology, International Finance and Liver Transplantation. [15]

Launched as a pilot in 1997 with fifty journals and expanded through 1998, [16] Wiley InterScience provided online access to Wiley journals, reference works, and books, including backfile content. Journals previously from Blackwell Publishing were available online from Blackwell Synergy until they were integrated into Wiley InterScience on June 30, 2008. In December 2007, Wiley also began distributing its technical titles through the Safari Books Online e-reference service. Interscience was supplanted by Wiley Online Library in 2010. [17]

On February 17, 2012, Wiley announced the acquisition of Inscape Holdings Inc., which provides DISC assessments and training for interpersonal business skills. [18]

On March 7, 2012, Wiley announced its intention to divest assets in the areas of travel (including the Frommer's brand), culinary, general interest, nautical, pets, and crafts, as well as the Webster's New World and CliffsNotes brands. The planned divestiture was aligned with Wiley's "increased strategic focus on content and services for research, learning, and professional practices, and on lifelong learning through digital technology". [19] On August 13, 2012, Wiley announced it entered into a definitive agreement to sell all of its travel assets, including all of its interests in the Frommer's brand, to Google Inc. [20] On November 6, 2012, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt acquired Wiley's cookbooks, dictionaries and study guides. [21] In 2013, Wiley sold its pets, crafts and general interest lines to Turner Publishing Company and its nautical line to Fernhurst Books. [22] HarperCollins acquired parts of Wiley Canada's trade operations in 2013 the remaining Canadian trade operations were merged into Wiley U.S. [23]

In 2021, Wiley acquired Hindawi (publisher) for $298 million in cash [24] to expand its open access journals portfolio. [9] Wiley stated it would keep the Hindawi journals under their previous brand and continue developing the open source publishing platform Phenom. [25]

Brands and partnerships Edit

Wiley's Professional Development brands include For Dummies, Jossey-Bass, Pfeiffer, Wrox Press, J.K. Lasser, Sybex, Fisher Investments Press, and Bloomberg Press. The STMS business is also known as Wiley-Blackwell, formed following the acquisition of Blackwell Publishing in February 2007. Brands include The Cochrane Library and more than 1,500 journals.

Wiley partners with GreyCampus to provide professional learning solutions [ buzzword ] around big data and digital literacy. [27] Wiley has also partnered with five other higher-education publishers to create CourseSmart, a company developed to sell college textbooks in eTextbook format on a common platform. [28] In 2002, Wiley created a partnership with French publisher Anuman Interactive in order to launch a series of e-books adapted from the For Dummies collection. [29] In 2013, Wiley partnered with American Graphics Institute to create an online education video and e-book subscription service called The Digital Classroom. [30]

In 2016, Wiley launched a worldwide partnership with Christian H. Cooper to create a program for candidates taking the Financial Risk Manager exam offered by the Global Association of Risk Professionals. The program will be built on the existing Wiley efficient learning platform and Christian's legacy Financial Risk Manager [31] product. The partnership is built on the view the FRM designation will rapidly grow to be one of the premier financial designations for practitioners that will track the growth of the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. The program will serve tens of thousands of FRM candidates worldwide and is based on the adaptive learning technology of Wiley's efficient learning platform and Christian's unique writing style and legacy book series. [32]

With the integration of digital technology and the traditional print medium, Wiley has stated that in the near future its customers will be able to search across all its content regardless of original medium and assemble a custom product in the format of choice. [33] Web resources are also enabling new types of publisher-customer interactions within the company's various businesses.

Open Access Edit

In 2016, Wiley started a collaboration with the open access publisher Hindawi to help convert nine Wiley journals to full open access. In 2018 a further announcement was made indicating that the Wiley-Hindawi collaboration would launch an additional four new fully open access journals. [34]

On January 18, 2019, Wiley signed a contract with Project DEAL to begin open access to its academic journals for more than 700 academic institutions. [35] It is the first contract between a publisher and a leading research nation (Germany) toward open access to scientific research.

Higher education Edit

Higher Education's "WileyPLUS" is an online product that combines electronic versions of texts with media resources and tools for instructors and students. It is intended to provide a single source from which instructors can manage their courses, create presentations, and assign and grade homework and tests students can receive hints and explanations as they work on homework, and link back to relevant sections of the text.

"Wiley Custom Select" launched in February 2009 as a custom textbook system allowing instructors to combine content from different Wiley textbooks and lab manuals and add in their own material. The company has begun to make content from its STMS business available to instructors through the system, with content from its Professional/Trade business to follow. [36]

In September 2019, Wiley entered into a collaboration with IIM Lucknow to offer analytics courses for finance executives. [37] [38]

Medicine Edit

In January 2008, Wiley launched a new version of its evidence-based medicine (EBM) product, InfoPOEMs with InfoRetriever, under the name Essential Evidence Plus, providing primary-care clinicians with point-of-care access to the most extensive source of EBM information [39] via their PDAs/handheld devices and desktop computers. Essential Evidence Plus includes the InfoPOEMs daily EBM content alerting service and two new content resources—EBM Guidelines, a collection of practice guidelines, evidence summaries, and images, and e-Essential Evidence, a reference for general practitioners, nurses, and physician assistants providing first-contact care. [40]

Architecture and design Edit

In October 2008, Wiley launched a new online service providing continuing education units (CEU) and professional development hour (PDH) credits to architects and designers. The initial courses are adapted from Wiley books, extending their reach into the digital space. Wiley is an accredited AIA continuing education provider. [ citation needed ]

Wiley Online Library Edit

Wiley Online Library is a subscription-based library of John Wiley & Sons that launched on August 7, 2010, replacing Wiley InterScience. [17] It is a collection of online resources covering life, health, and physical sciences as well as social science and the humanities. To its members, Wiley Online Library delivers access to over 4 million articles from 1,600 journals, more than 22,000 books, and hundreds of reference works, laboratory protocols, and databases from John Wiley & Sons and its imprints, including Wiley-Blackwell, Wiley-VCH, and Jossey-Bass.

Governance and operations Edit

While the company is led by an independent management team and Board of Directors, the involvement of the Wiley family is ongoing, with sixth-generation members (and siblings) Peter Booth Wiley as the non-executive chairman of the board and Bradford Wiley II as a Director and past chairman of the board. Seventh-generation members Jesse and Nate Wiley work in the company's Professional/Trade and Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly businesses, respectively.

Wiley has been publicly owned since 1962, and listed on the New York Stock Exchange since 1995 its stock is traded under the symbols NYSE: JW.A (for its Class A stock) and NYSE: JW.B (for its class B stock).

Wiley's operations are organized into three business divisions:

  • Scientific, Technical, Medical, and Scholarly (STMS), also known as Wiley-Blackwell
  • Professional Development
  • Global Education

The company has approximately 5,000 employees worldwide, with headquarters in Hoboken, New Jersey, since 2002.

Corporate culture Edit

In 2008, Wiley was named for the second consecutive year to Forbes magazine's annual list of the "400 Best Big Companies in America". In 2007, Book Business magazine cited Wiley as "One of the 20 Best Book Publishing Companies to Work For". For two consecutive years, 2006 and 2005, Fortune magazine named Wiley one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For". Wiley Canada was named to Canadian Business magazine's 2006 list of "Best Workplaces in Canada", and Wiley Australia has received the Australian government's "Employer of Choice for Women" citation every year since its inception in 2001. In 2004, Wiley was named to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's "Best Workplaces for Commuters" list. Working Mother magazine in 2003 listed Wiley as one of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers", and that same year, the company received the Enterprise Award from the New Jersey Business & Industry Association in recognition of its contribution to the state's economic growth. In 1998, Financial Times selected Wiley as one of the "most respected companies" with a "strong and well thought out strategy" in its global survey of CEOs.

In August 2009, the company announced a proposed reduction of Wiley-Blackwell staff in content management operations in the UK and Australia by approximately 60, in conjunction with an increase of staff in Asia. [41] In March 2010, it announced a similar reorganization of its Wiley-Blackwell central marketing operations that would lay off approximately 40 employees. The company's position was that the primary goal of this restructuring was to increase workflow efficiency. In June 2012, it announced the proposed closing of its Edinburgh facility in June 2013 with the intention of relocating journal content management activities currently performed there to Oxford and Asia. The move would lay off approximately 50 employees. [42]

Gender pay gap Edit

Wiley reported a mean 2017 gender pay gap of 21.1% for its UK workforce, while the median was 21.5%. The gender bonus gaps are far higher, at 50.7% for the median measure and 42.3% for the mean. Wiley said: "Our mean and median bonus gaps are driven by our highest earners, who are predominantly male." [43]

Journal protests Edit

The entire editorial board of the European Law Journal resigned over a dispute about contract terms and the behavior of its publisher, Wiley. Wiley did not allow the editorial board members to decide over editorial appointments and decisions. [44]

A majority of the editorial board of the journal Diversity & Distributions resigned in 2018 after Wiley allegedly blocked the publication of a letter protesting the publisher's decision to make the journal entirely open access. [45]

Publication practices Edit

Wiley makes some articles disappear from their journals without any explanation. [46]

Manipulation of bibliometrics Edit

According to Goodhart's law and concerned academics like the signatories of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment, commercial academic publishers benefit from manipulation of bibliometrics and scientometrics like the journal impact factor, which is often used as proxy of prestige and can influence revenues, including public subsidies in the form of subscriptions and free work from academics. [47]

Five Wiley journals, which exhibited unusual levels of self-citation, had their journal impact factor of 2019 suspended from Journal Citation Reports in 2020, a sanction which hit 34 journals in total. [48]

Photographer copyrights Edit

A 2013 lawsuit brought by a stock photo agency for alleged violation of a 1997 license was dismissed for procedural reasons. [49]

A 2014 ruling by the District Court for the Southern District of New York, [50] later affirmed by the Second Circuit, [51] says that Wiley infringed on the copyright of photographer Tom Bean by using his photos beyond the scope of the license it had purchased. The case was connected to a larger set of copyright infringement cases brought by photo agency DRK against various publishers. [52]

A 2015 9th Circuit Court of Appeals opinion established that another photo agency had standing to sue Wiley for its usage of photos beyond the scope of the license acquired. [53]

Used books Edit

In 2018, a Southern District of New York court upheld the award of over $39 million to Wiley and other textbook publishers in a vast litigation against Book Dog Books, a re-seller of used books which was found to hold and distribute counterfeit copies. The Court found that circumstantial evidence was sufficient to establish distribution of 116 titles for which counterfeit copies had been presented and of other 5 titles. It also found that unchallenged testimony on how the publishers' usually acquired licenses from authors was sufficient to establish the publishers' copyright on the books in question. [54] [55]

Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons Edit

In 2008, John Wiley & Sons filed suit against Thailand native Supap Kirtsaeng over the sale of textbooks made outside of the United States and then imported into the country. [56] In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court held 6–3 that the first-sale doctrine applied to copies of copyrighted works made and sold abroad at lower prices, reversing the Second Circuit decision which had favored Wiley. [57]

Internet Archive lawsuit Edit

In June 2020, Wiley was one of a group of publishers who sued the Internet Archive, arguing that its collection of e-books was denying authors and publishers revenue and accusing the library of "willful mass copyright infringement". [58] [59]

Publishing History

Women crime writers appeared alongside men in the pulp magazines of the 1920s and 30s, but they were rare, and largely pseudonymous. Cheap violence and action-packed adventure didn’t offer the proper vehicles for the stories women mystery writers wished to tell. Instead they were more likely to appear in the general interest “slicks,” like Collier’s and The Saturday Evening Post, which paid better women’s magazines, such as Ladies’ Home Journal and Cosmopolitan or, after its 1941 founding, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, which made room for all kinds of mystery stories—detective, international, just plain crime—and became a particular haven for women writers.

Women’s magazines are of particular interest in the story of domestic suspense, because of their audience: Young and middle-aged women, single and married were seeking respite from their ennui and alienation. The appearance of domestic suspense fiction poked holes in the “happy homemaker” ideal put forward by the more positive, beauty-and fashion-oriented articles.

Women crime writers were as likely as their male counterparts to publish in hardcover—at firms like Harper & Brothers Duell, Sloan, and Pearce Random House the famed Doubleday Crime Club and Simon & Schuster’s Inner Sanctum imprint—more often than not working with celebrated women mystery editors such as Lee Wright, Joan Kahn, Isabelle Taylor, and Marie Rodell. Taylor was the pioneer, fashioning the Crime Club for Doubleday in 1928 and working with Margaret Millar, Sax Rohmer, and Mignon Eberhart among others. Wright was considered to be the top editor in the genre, starting from humble beginnings as Richard Simon’s secretary at Simon & Schuster before she founded the imprint Inner Sanctum in 1936, bringing in Stanley Ellin, Gypsy Rose Lee (for The G-String Murders) and Edgar-winner Mildred B. Davis. (Wright later left and joined Random House in 1957, taking many of those writers with her.)

Throughout the war, women and men were, in essence, on equal footing in publishing, reaching both genders through hardcovers and then, in greater quantities, paperbacks. But when pulp paperback original publishing came along in the late 1940s and early 50s, and with the advent of imprints like Fawcett Gold Medal, a curious thing happened: the old pattern from pulp magazines re-established itself. Male authors went to the paperbacks, the quick advance, and the gigantic print runs, which were marketed to a predominantly male audience who viewed the books as disposable. With rare exceptions, female authors kept to the hardcovers, their books geared to libraries and book-of-the-month clubs with smaller print runs. The narrowed print runs and general lack of availability to a mass audience may account for the greater focus paid to the male writers over women writers as much as does the mystique of the pulps.

Publisher’s Note: The Context of History

This week, the Gabber introduces a nine-part retrospective about school integration in Gulfport and surrounding communities. Some of our readers may wonder why we felt compelled to write about events that, to them, feel far removed from their day-to-day lives.

The short answer: It’s not that far removed from everyone’s lives, and a newspaper must report the news, but also give it context. That’s what this series does: It gives us context for things we see happening today. That context isn’t pleasant to learn, but it’s worse for those who have lived it. Over the next two months, readers will face some uncomfortable truths about how our history still guides our present.

Things are still not equal. It’s not our job, as a newspaper, to tell you how you can make things better. Our job is to print the news and, as I said, offer context. This series will examine how Florida’s history of segregated schools still impacts how we function as a community. We’ll look at how we had to be forced to educate Black students and the lower standards that resulted, and also how some of our schools bear the names of those who led – and fought – the charge for change.

It is our hope that, after reading the series, those of us who have the privilege of never being told we couldn’t attend a white-only school or finish our high school education because of our race will come to a better understanding of how choices made 150, 100 or 50 years ago still drive inequality in how we teach our Black children and what opportunities don’t open up to Black Floridians because of it.
