Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, has announced an agreement with ISTE to become its exclusive co-publisher in the Americas, Asia, and other territories worldwide, from January 2008.

Under the agreement, the two companies will co-publish approximately 60 books per year in the fields of electrical, civil, and mechanical engineering; information and communication technology; numerical methods; materials science; digital signal and image processing; and networks. Thirty-four new titles are promised for the first quarter of 2008.
