Posted at 8:13AM Thursday 01 Jan 2009

Woodhead Publishing has acquired the backlist, future titles and imprint of Chandos Publishing in Witney, Oxford, UK, comprising over 250 books in the fields of library and information management. Also included is a new series of books on Asian Studies.

Chandos' Managing Director, Dr. Glyn Jones, is also joining Woodhead and will continue to develop titles under the Chandos imprint, working from an office in Witney near Oxford.

Commenting on the acquisition, Martin Woodhead of Woodhead Publishing said, 'The Chandos list has grown rapidly under Glyn Jones to become a leading international publisher in the field of library and information management. We share a similar publishing strategy by focusing on niche areas in the professional and academic market and are delighted to be welcoming Glyn into our business.'

Glyn Jones said, 'I am looking forward to continuing to build up the Chandos imprint under the ownership of Woodhead Publishing. Authors will benefit from Woodhead's extensive sales and marketing network and their new e-platform which is being launched in partnership with MetaPress in July 2009.'

The acquisition will be completed on 24 December, after which all orders for Chandos titles under the ISBN prefix of 978184334 will be available from Woodhead Publishing. The existing Chandos website www.chandospublishing.com will remain until mid-January 2009 when it will be incorporated into the Woodhead website.
