Royal Society of New Zealand and Taylor & Francis co-publishing partnership, 2010
"Taylor & Francis and the Royal Society of New Zealand have to announced a co-publishing partnership for the Society's eight journals starting in 2010. The Royal Society of New Zealand journals include over three hundred volume years of top science content covering New Zealand research specialities such as the geosciences, botany, agriculture, horticulture, zoology and multidisciplinary science, with particular emphasis in the territories of New Zealand, Antarctica, the Antipodes and the Pacific Rim. The Royal Society of New Zealand's flagship social science journal Kōtuitui balances these debates by providing a home for a wide range of social science discussions with the additional intention of displaying the links between the social and physical sciences. Taylor & Francis's Melbourne office will provide local production and editorial liaison while the company's international marketing networks will ensure the journals are given tactical, tailor-made marketing to ensure their authors receive the greatest possible exposure for the unique content that the collection contains. The journals will move to Taylor & Francis's InformaWorld platform, where they will benefit from HTML versions of articles, forward citation linking and advanced publication of articles online through iFirst. ScholarOne Manuscripts online submission and review will also be established, making peer review more efficient and maximizing outreach to international authors. Back issues of the journals will be digitized and made available to subscribers online"
