Wiley has acquired the assets of FIZ Chemie Berlin, which provides online database products for organic and industrial chemists. The acquisition is said to align with Wiley's strategy to support research, learning, and professional practice through high-quality content and services. The publisher says that it is expanding its presence in Berlin and that the new venture is providing roles for more than 30 skilled information professionals.

The products involved include the ChemInform weekly abstracting service and reaction database (CIRX), as well as the abstracting journal Chemisches Zentralblatt, the InfoTherm database of thermophysical properties, and eLearning tools and services.

'The FIZ suite of databases and services are a great addition to Wiley’s deep reservoir of chemical databases, journals, books and references. The FIZ products and services will enable Wiley to build a new generation of information products to help boost the productivity of chemists,' said Steve Miron, senior vice president, Scientific, Technical, Medical and Scholarly, Wiley.
