Peter Lang partners with Jisc on UK agreement

Peter Lang International Academic Publishing Group has partnered with Jisc to make its e-book collections of monographs, proceedings and reference works available for purchase through the agreements JISC has negotiated for its members. 

Starting immediately and running to December 2018, this partnership provides universities and colleges in the United Kingdom with access to Peter Lang’s entire collection of 10,000+ DRM-free e-books, including nearly 4,000 English language titles.

The titles are available as mini collections, subject collections, evidence-based selection collections or standalone titles across all disciplines in humanities and social Sciences.

'I am delighted that Jisc have selected Peter Lang titles for the UK academic community agreements,' said Adam Gardner, group commercial director at Peter Lang. 

'For all our 47-year history, Peter Lang has been a reliable publisher working directly with libraries and the key library suppliers worldwide, supplying more than 1,500 new titles annually. With this new agreement and support from Jisc, UK libraries and scholars will now be enabled affordable access to our entire e-book collection.'

UK universities and college should register their interest via the JISC Collections platform at https://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/Catalogue/Overview/index/2815.
