December 15, 2021 - Hoboken, NJ - Global research and education leader Wiley today announced the asset purchase of eJournalPress (EJP), a leading provider of software and support services for scholarly publishing. With this investment, Wiley plans to drive the evolution of the technology and platforms that underpin research publishing and advance the future of research communication.
EJP's online manuscript submission, peer review, and journal production tracking systems deliver a comprehensive service for authors, editors and publishers to create, review and manage scholarly content as it moves through peer-review and gets published online.
"Getting trusted, peer-reviewed research into the world requires both smart people and sophisticated technology," said Jay Flynn, Wiley Executive Vice President and General Manager, Research. "By investing in the future of EJP, we will drive innovation in journal workflow and peer review management to deliver best-in-class solutions for our clients and partners."
"We are excited to join Wiley with a joint commitment to helping societies, associations, and publishers innovate and improve publisher workflows. This milestone will also allow us to grow and invest in enhanced workflow solutions," said Joel Plotkin, EJP's founder.
EJP will operate independently from Wiley's publishing business.
With the purchase of EJP, Wiley furthers its mission to support researchers and enable discovery.
