John Wiley & Sons, Inc., (NYSE: JWa) (NYSE: JWb), has launched the Chinese version of its Materials Views website.
MaterialsViewsChina.com is a dedicated news service for materials science, chemistry, and physics in Chinese and is a specially tailored companion to the popular English service MaterialsViews.com. It will provide high quality original content selected and written by professional editors and will be updated regularly. The website is aimed at Chinese-speaking researchers, scientists, and students in industry and academia across the world.
About one-third of the papers published in some of Wiley’s top materials science journals – including Advanced Materials – originate from China. Chinese submissions have been increasing at an exponential rate, and coupled with a very strong Chinese readership of MaterialsViews.com, the Wiley editorial team decided to build a site that would reach the Chinese community in their language. The newly launched site will feature a mix of translated MaterialsViews.com content and original articles from Chinese researchers and scientists.
David Flanagan of MaterialsViews.com said, “The journey we took to build this site has been a truly global one. We based MaterialsViewsChina.com on the site model of the original MaterialsViews.com housed in Europe, while collaborating very closely with our Chinese partners and contributors to localize content as well as to provide in-depth original papers.
Mingxin Hou of MaterialsViewsChina.com added, “Our aim moving forward is to work closely with the research community in China. The launch of the site reflects Wiley’s continued commitment to bringing the best of Wiley’s material science to China and China’s top scientific research to a global audience.”
Regular contributor to the MaterialsViewsChina.com site, Professor Limin Qi from Peking University’s Department of Chemistry said, “We are thrilled that Wiley has decided to launch the local language version of MaterialsViews.com, and even more excited that this site will feature original content from the Chinese research community. This initiative will be instrumental in providing greater exposure to researchers and scientists in China, hence supporting our strategy of raising the quality of China’s research output.”
MaterialsViewsChina.com will be rolling out new features over the next few months, including fresh content, more in-depth articles, an author services space dedicated to guiding younger authors looking to publish their first paper in an international journal, as well as video capabilities.
