CMA and CSP Announce New Journals Collection

Canadian Medical Association and Canadian Science Publishing Join 
Forces to Expand National and Global Distribution of Research

Ottawa, October 3, 2011 - Canada's leading not-for-profit 
scholarly 'publishers-the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) and 
Canadian Science Publishing (CSP)-have entered into a strategic 
alliance to expand the dissemination of important research 
findings to clinicians and researchers across Canada and around 
the globe. Starting in 2012, the publishers will form a premiere 
journals collection via subscription to large academic, medical, 
government, and corporate libraries and consortia.

CMA Publications is responsible for publishing CMAJ, CMA's 
flagship journal and Canada's leading general medical journal. A 
not-for-profit publisher originally established in 1929, CSP 
produces 15 science and technology journals under the brand NRC 
Research Press. Under the new arrangement, CSP will promote 
subscription sales to CMAJ as part of a complete STM or 
biomedical journal package. Both publishers will continue to 
offer single title subscriptions to those institutions preferring 
to subscribe on a title-by-title basis.

"CMAJ is a substantial addition to our journals collection, and 
we are thrilled to meet the needs of librarians by offering a 
complete compendium of journals across the Science, Technical and 
Medical (STM) spectrum," said Cameron Macdonald, Executive 
Director of CSP. Director of Publications, CMA,Glenda Proctor, 
added that, "CMAJ has significantly impacted medicine and health 
care over the past 100 years, and we feel certain that our new 
alliance will allow librarians to access our combined content 
more efficiently and help us reach emerging markets around the 
world more effectively."

CMAJ showcases innovative research and ideas aimed at improving 
health for people in Canada and globally through its publication 
of original clinical research, analyses and reviews, news, 
practice updates and thought-provoking editorials. In 2011, the 
journal celebrates 100 years of publishing medical knowledge in 
print and now online (http://www.cmaj.ca). CMAJ has an impact 
factor of 9.0 and its website receives over 30 million requests a 
year. New content is uploaded on cmaj.ca every week.

CSP is the foremost Canadian publisher of award-winning, 
peer-reviewed science and offers access to the largest archive of 
published research in Canada. With an international editorial 
team comprising some of the world's leading researchers, CSP 
communicates scientific discoveries to over 175 countries. All 15 
NRC Research Press journals are available online 
(www.nrcresearchpress.com) and are accessible e-First before 
print publication on a new state-of-the art web platform.

NRC Research Press, previously the publishing arm of the National 
Research Council of Canada (NRC) since 1929, transitioned in 
September 2010 from NRC and the Federal Government of Canada into 
an independent not-for-profit organization operating under the 
new name Canadian Science Publishing. For more information on
