Springer announced that it would be exclusively responsible for production, marketing, and distribution for the French scientific publishing house Atlantis Press. Atlantis Press will continue to develop its own program of books, primarily in the fields of computer science, mathematics and physics, and will still use the Atlantis Press imprint. Under the agreement, Springer will handle both the company's backlist and its future publications.
Springer and Atlantis Press began working together on December 1, 2010. All new Atlantis Press titles will continue to be published in print form and will simultaneously be available as ebooks on the SpringerLink internet platform.
Springer is responsible for producing the printed books in PTO format. The metadata for the individual titles, such as ISBN, title and author, will allow them to be identified as Atlantis Press titles and can be located quickly on the Springer website.
