American Geophysical Union, Wiley Renew Publishing Partnership

The scientific society's journals have made major gains in frequency of citation and speed of publication since the partnership began in 2013.

By

The world’s largest organization of Earth and space scientists, the American Geophysical Union, has renewed its publishing partnership with Wiley, a global company that publishes online scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly journals. The extended partnership will allow AGU to further enhance its scientific publications, reinforce its continued support of robust scholarly research, and advance the ability of science and scientific research to inform and improve people’s lives.

Each year, AGU publishes more than 6000 original research and review articles reflecting the breadth of science practiced by its members. Since first partnering with Wiley in 2013, AGU has seen its publications flourish, with AGU journals becoming some of the most cited publications in the Earth and space sciences.

AGU currently publishes 20 highly respected, rigorously peer reviewed journals—including three new open access journals: Earth’s Future, Earth and Space Science, and GeoHealth. With a simplified submissions process, AGU’s times from acceptance to publication for most of its journals have also accelerated. Those times now rank among the fastest in the field. Additional content enhancements have allowed authors to expect their research to be more easily discovered, widely read, and likely to be cited, while helping to ensure that funders’ open access mandates are fulfilled. AGU also publishes award-winning books.

Commenting on the renewed partnership, Wiley’s president and CEO Mark Allin said, “Through our deep collaboration and shared organizational values, we have successfully partnered to further strengthen AGU’s brand, expand its portfolio of journals and books, and broaden access to AGU’s science for researchers worldwide. We are proud and honored that AGU has chosen to entrust to Wiley the care of its publishing program for an additional term and look forward to working to continue advancing the scholarly communication of the vital research published by the AGU community.”
