SAGE Publications Acquires Hodder Arnold's Journals

June 12, 2006


SAGE Publications and Hodder Education are pleased to announce 
the acquisition by SAGE Publications of Hodder Arnold's journals 
list, incorporating 33 titles.  The Arnold list complements 
SAGE's existing portfolio of over 400 academic and professional 
journals and enhances significantly its offering in the medical 

SAGE will continue to publish all journals with the existing 
editors as of today. The Arnold list joins SAGE's very strong 
portfolio of journals in social sciences and scientific, 
technical and medical (STM) publishing.

"We are delighted to have acquired such a robust list of journals 
from Hodder Arnold", said Blaise R. Simqu, President and CEO of 
the SAGE Publications group of companies. "The acquisition 
enables us to grow our already significant content in social 
sciences but crucially, contributes to our plans to build our 
portfolio of titles in STM journal publishing, and medical 
journals in particular."

This transaction reflects Hodder Education's strategy to build on 
its strengths in book publishing in the knowledge that academic 
journals publishing has become a specialised activity best 
conducted by larger journals publishers such as SAGE.  "We are 
pleased that we have managed to find an excellent home for this 
important list of journals which we have nurtured over many 
years," said Philip Walters, Managing Director of Hodder 

SAGE Publications is already a global player in social sciences 
publishing with over 350 social science journals and a burgeoning 
books program.

"Our ambitions to develop a global STM publishing program are 
already well under way," added Stephen Barr, Managing Director of 
SAGE Publications in London.  "We have 63 STM titles, a small 
number in engineering and materials science and the rest in 
medical and life sciences.  We have a talented STM team both in 
California and London with plans to grow the team and the program 

"This is an exciting moment for SAGE," said Stephen.  "Including 
the Arnold acquisition, our new global program now includes 
nearly 50 ISI ranked journals across the health sciences.  We now 
have an excellent international mix in our medical publishing 
business, which will reinforce our reputation as the natural home 
for authors, editors and societies, on a global scale".

Hodder Education was advised by the van Tulleken Company.
