EBSCO's MetaPress To Host 150-Year Old Archives of IMechE
:: From 22 August 2005 Knowledgespeak News:
The UK's Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), a publisher and engineering association, has entered into a deal with subscription agent EBSCO, US, to offer its journals and new backfile archives via the latter's service. Professional Engineering Publishing, the publishing arm of ImechE, has said that the move is part of its plan to introduce its Digital Archive of Proceeding. EBSCO will host all prominent IMechE publications - current as well as archives dating back to 150 years - through its MetaPress web hosting platform.
Last month, in a similar move, six scientific and technical publishers including the engineering publishers National Defence Industrial Association (NDIA) and the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, Hungarian Akadémiai Kiadó and academic publisher Baywood Publishing, had added their content to the EBSCO platform.
