Wiley signs collaboration agreement with the Asian Federation of Biotechnology
Date:9/18/2012

Weinheim, Germany. September 18, 2012. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., has announced the signing of a new collaboration agreement between Biotechnology Journal and the Asian Federation of Biotechnology (AFOB). From 2013 the Federation will contribute two special issues to the journal annually, while representatives from the AFOB will join the editorial board.

Since launching in 2006 Biotechnology Journal has become a truly international title. Edited by Professor Sang Yup Lee, from KAIST University in South Korea, and Professor Alois Jungbauer from BOKU University in Austria, the journal attracts international authors, a global readership and will be awarded an official Impact Factor in 2013.

As a partner journal of the AFOB, the Biotechnology Journal will work with the Federation to disseminate scientific knowledge from Asian research communities to a global audience by dedicating special issues to research and breakthroughs on topics that are relevant to all biotechnologists.

A new "AFOB Highlights" section will also be introduced to the journal as a forum for reporting Federation news, announcements, prizes and awards.

The AFOB will also contribute news and views to Wiley's BiotecVisions e-magazine, which will be circulated to all Federation members on a monthly basis.

Biotechnology Journal will continue to collaborate with the European Federation of Biotechnology section on Biochemical Engineering, placing it in a unique position to serve as a bridge between European and Asian biotechnologists.

"Wiley's mission is to bring the best of science to an international audience," said Carol Bacchus, Vice President and Publishing Director, Life Sciences, Wiley. "This AFOB collaboration is a new milestone, which will foster greater international co-operation between Asian and non-Asian scientists to enhance our knowledge in all areas and applications of biotechnology and engineering technologies."

"Working with Biotechnology Journal has always been a pleasurable and successful experience for the AFOB," said Professor Ho Nam Chang, AFOB's incoming president. "We are therefore delighted to have this official agreement, which will further promote research from Asia to an international audience."
