ASEM, EMJ, and Taylor & Francis are very pleased to announce a new publishing partnership beginning in mid-2015. The partnership is a positive step for both parties creating more exposure and ease of discoverability for EMJ through Taylor & Francis’ extensive marketing, online and distribution networks, including full-text search functions, on Taylor & Francis Online. In this partnership, ASEM will maintain leadership and editorial control, while collaborating with T&F in marketing, producing, publishing, distributing, and administering the online workflow and presence of EMJ. This transition will greatly enhance the distribution, visibility, growth of EMJ and also provide additional key benefits for members and authors.
