Publishers Communication Group signs three sales agreements

Share this on social media:

Publishers Communication Group has signed agreements with Berrett-Koehler Publishers, MIT Press and Morgan & Claypool Publishers for direct sales into new global markets. 

Berrett-Koehler Publishers, the independent business and current events publisher, will now sell its BKpedia collection of leadership and management ebooks via PCG’s local operations in Latin America, India and China. BKpedia is a curated, digital subscription service that aggregates and organizes hundreds of books, articles, and other content from Berrett-Koehler, the Center for Creative Leadership and AMACOM into thematic collections for libraries and end users.

The MIT Press has retained PCG to sell its full journal collection in Latin America and India. The university press, active in the arts and humanities, economics, international affairs, history, science and technology, publishes 30 titles that will now be promoted to two of the world’s fastest growing audiences for scholarly content.

Lastly, Morgan and Claypool Publishers will utilise PCG’s presence and relationships in Latin America to sell its Colloquium Digital Library of Life Sciences. The collection contains 135 ebooks organised into 12 different series, covering subjects including cell biology, genetics, neurobiology and medicine.

As the dedicated representative for all three publishers in the respective domains, PCG will execute domestic sales and exhibits programs, selling access to academic institutions and government consortia.
 
Melissanne Scheld, managing director of PCG, said: 'We are thrilled to bring The MIT Press, Morgan & Claypool, and Berrett-Koehler into the sales programs within our local territories. Augmenting our portfolio of must-have content marketed to our established networks throughout China, India and Latin America, these three innovative publishers are a natural fit for PCG.  

'These dynamic collections of journals and ebooks in expanded fields will offer new appeal to libraries and the academic community for teaching and research, and PCG is the right partner to expand their reach in these important, growing markets.'
