Elsevier, a provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced the acquisition of Knovel Corp. New York City-based Knovel provides a web-based application that integrates technical information with analytical and search tools to drive innovation and deliver answers engineers can trust.
Founded in 2001, Knovel integrates information and data from more than 100 engineering societies and publishers and makes it highly searchable and interactive so that engineers can easily manipulate the data they find and use it in other engineering applications.
Recently named by research firm Outsell one of the "10 to Watch" in scientific/technical and medical publishing, Knovel has expanded its offerings and customer base as multiple factors have influenced the engineering technical reference market segment. As a leading publisher of engineering journals and books, Elsevier offers global reach, an extensive partner network and a high-quality pool of relevant engineering content. Elsevier has a longstanding content licensing relationship with Knovel and will continue to seek out the best engineering content available for customers.
