SAGE acquires four Palgrave Macmillan journals

Los Angeles, CA (February 8, 2011) – SAGE, the world’s leading independent academic and professional publisher, today announced the purchase of four journals currently owned and published by Palgrave Macmillan. The four quarterly titles, Information Visualization, Journal of Generic Medicines, Journal of Medical Marketingand Tourism and Hospitality Research have already moved to SAGE, which published its first issue of each journal in January 2011.

Information Visualizationis an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing articles on fundamental research and applications of information visualization. The journal acts as a dedicated forum for the theories, methodologies, techniques and evaluations of information visualization and its applications.

Journal of Generic Medicinesis the major, international business journal for expert analysis, briefings and legal updates on all aspects of business development, regulatory affairs, manufacturing and marketing for the generic pharmaceutical industry. The journal publishes relevant analyses, briefings and updates that meet the highest intellectual standards.

Under the guidance of its respected Editor and expert Editorial Board, Journal of Medical Marketing is the leading international journal for executives performing a marketing or commercial role at every company producing pharmaceuticals, medical devices or diagnostic equipment for the medical industry. The journal publishes a wide range of peer-reviewed practice papers, research articles and professional briefings written by industry experts.

Tourism and Hospitality Researchis firmly established as a leading and authoritative journal for tourism and hospitality researchers and professionals. The journal covers every aspect of tourism and hospitality research, including such subjects as: operations; marketing, consumer behavior; HR; eTourism; eTravel; development; finance; strategies; the environment; government policy; forecasting; revenue; impact assessment; globalization; leisure; culture; and research.

"We are delighted to welcome these four new titles to SAGE in 2011," said Stephen Barr, President, SAGE International. "Information Visualization fits into a long established tradition for SAGE of supporting new and growing areas of research. Tourism and Hospitality Research joins a highly regarded publishing program including both books and journals. Journal of Generic Medicines and Journal of Medical Marketing are ideal for our growing base of medical journals, adding another facet to the therapeutic and clinical areas we currently reach. We look forward to working with the current editors to broaden and develop all four journals."

"The decision to divest these titles follows a strategic review of our scholarly journals publishing activity. We have been keen to identify the areas and disciplines in which we wish to continue to develop, build and invest (the social sciences, business and the humanities), but also the areas in which we can step back, thus allowing focus on our strengths" said David Bull, Publishing Director, Palgrave Macmillan, Journals & Reference. "We are proud to have developed these titles into the respected publications that they are today, and while they are no longer core to our plans for future growth and success, we believe they will continue to be influential and develop."
