Gale and De Gruyter Enter into Distribution Agreement

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, and Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG, have entered into an agreement allowing Gale to distribute De Gruyter periodicals through a number of its academic resources.

“With a 260-year history in publishing, De Gruyter is highly regarded as an international publisher and we are happy to include selected De Gruyter periodicals in our electronic databases, primarily Academic One File, Health Reference Center Academic, Literature Resource Center, Psychology Collection and Communications and Mass Media,” said Ken Breen, Gale’s vice president of business development. “The newly added titles reflect the subject areas our customers have expressed interest in, providing users an even broader selection when using Gale’s academic resources.”

Titles included are academic periodicals in the areas of medicine, religion, sociology and archaeology, plus heavy coverage of linguistics. Of the 37 periodicals included in this agreement, 35 are peer reviewed.

“By adding these titles to Gale databases, we are providing librarians, students and researchers greater access to our content,” said Sven Fund, CEO of De Gruyter. “Our goal is to make sure our customers have easy access to the materials that meet their resource needs.”
