Swets Information Services has announced that it will make a large electronic journal selection of EDP Sciences and IOS Press available to Chinese users via a broadband connection with SwetsWise Online Content. To enable this, Swets forged a deal with CERNET, the Chinese academic Internet service provider, earlier this year. The delivery of rapid electronic access is part of Swets' 'Gateway to China' package, which also includes sales & marketing and market intelligence support for publishers targeting the fast-growing Chinese market. The 'Gateway to China' package is part of a larger global ejournal management drive. EDP (Edition Diffusion Press) Sciences publishes international scientific journals, books and Web sites regarding astrophysics, theoretical and applied physics, chemistry, life sciences, mathematics, and cross-disciplinary fields. IOS Press is an international scientific, technical, medical, and professional publishing house.
