Cadmus Lands 5 Year End-to-End Publishing Deal from Pediatrics group
Press release from the issuing company
November 10, 2006 – Cadmus Communications Corporation says the American Academy of Pediatrics (‘AAP’) has awarded the company a 5-year contract to provide a full range of outsourced publishing production services for its three prestigious publications. The award includes services for AAP’s Pediatrics, which has the highest impact factor, is the most-cited journal in its field, and is among the top 2% of most-cited scientific and medical journals. Cadmus will provide full issue management services for AAP including copyediting, composition, XML coding, printing, binding and distribution for both printed and online versions of AAP publications.
These services are performed domestically for AAP, although Cadmus also offers flexible global workflow solutions on a per-title basis. In addition to this contract, Cadmus also provides commercial reprint sales, commercial reprint production, and medical textbook publishing services for AAP under separate agreements.
“We selected Cadmus because of its ability to provide an end-to-end solution to support our limited staff in the publishing division and because of the symbiotic working relationship we have developed over the years,” stated Kerry O’Rourke, senior managing editor, Division of Scholarly Journals & Professional Periodicals at AAP. “We value highly this true partnership with Cadmus, a partnership that plays an integral role in helping us to disseminate critical information from the nation’s leading child health experts in a timely and accurate manner.”
Debbie McClanahan, Cadmus’ executive vice president for service and market relations, added, “This award grew not only out of our long and successful association with AAP but also out of the key role we played in the recent and
highly successful redesign of Pediatrics. With our depth of scholarly publishing expertise and our thorough understanding of AAP’s publishing business, Cadmus was a stabilizing factor during this key initiative and seamlessly augmented AAP’s relatively new publishing team throughout this challenging process.”
“Publishers are looking for partners who can support the steady increase in page counts and the many new and emerging publishing models in the scholarly publishing community,” stated Bruce Thomas, chief executive officer at Cadmus. “Cadmus has invested in the people, in the technology, and in the global resources to support these trends and to help our publishing customers both drive efficiencies and experiment with new publishing models on a title-by title and on a global basis. We are thrilled that prestigious publishers like AAP continue to rely on Cadmus and continue to find value in our full service publishing services.”
