Knovel Adds Six Publishers

New Content Expands Knovel's International Footprint and Subject Areas

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Mar 26, 2013) - Continuing to respond to its growing international customer base, Knovel today announced the addition of six new publishers. The new publishers allow Knovel, a leader in providing a Web-based application that integrates technical information with analytical and search tools, to introduce more content to its existing collection and provide users with authoritative answers to their most critical questions.

"Our customers work with us to ensure their engineers have access to the critical data they need to get their jobs done efficiently, and our publishers help us to make that happen," says Meagan Cooke, Director of Content Strategy for Knovel. "We're pleased to be able to introduce a selection of great new content, which will be available across dozens of subject areas."

New publishers include:

AIHA Publications: The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is the premier association of occupational and environmental health and safety professionals. AIHA has developed a strong international reputation as a publisher of essential books for professionals.

Analytics Press: Analytics Press teaches applied business analytics and critical thinking skills by publishing books, reports, course materials and software, and by organizing seminars and workshops.

Dover Publications: Dover Publications, Inc., founded by New Yorkers Hayward and Blanche Cirker in 1941, is headquartered in Mineola, New York. A niche book publishing house with over 120 employees, Dover produces more than 10,000 titles including books on mathematics, engineering, science, architecture, astronomy, chess, clip art and fine art, crafts, history, literature, music, children's books, and titles by over two dozen Nobel Laureates.

Maritime and Coastguard Agency: The Maritime and Coastguard Agency implements the government's maritime safety policy in the U.K. and works to prevent the loss of life on the coast and at sea.

"The strength of our business has allowed us to continue to grow and develop our inventory of math and science publications, and strengthening our digital presence has been a top priority over the past few years," said Frank Fontana, President of Dover Publications. "Knovel is the perfect partner to help us introduce many of our print titles to online communities in digital format for the very first time. Knovel's interactive charts, graphs and equations were especially appealing as we looked for the best way to present our content in this new format."
