"We are very proud to team up with NOW Publishers", said Eric Briys, Cyberlibris co-founder, "NOW Publishers bring a fresh view to academic publishing. They have been able to assemble a scientific powerhouse in a matter of just a few years. Their team of editors and authors is awesome, just think of George M. Constantinides, William Zame, W. Kip Viscusi, Franklin Allen, Andrew W. Lo, René M. Stulz to name a few. No doubt that our customers, faculty and students, will enjoy hunting such academic jewels."
Eric Briys added that "working with Zachary Rolnik is a rare privilege which I am happy to enjoy again. Zac and I are at the origin of The Review of Derivatives Research and the CEMS Business Review (now the European Business Forum Magazine), fond academic memories indeed!"
NOW was started by two senior publishing executives to provide the research community with a partnership for publishing. International in structure, the company brings a new era to academic publishing, which values editors and authors, deploys a liberal and fair copyright policy, and provides librarians with value for money.
NOW has introduced a new type of product into the research information market. Focusing initially in the Business and Technology areas, NOW has introduced Foundations and Trends® (FnT). This product combines the peer-review of journals, the high usage of reference works, and the pedagogy of textbooks. Each "issue" of FnT comprises one or more monographs of up to 100 pages written by research and opinion leaders in the field that surveys the literature and offers a state-of-the-art review of the subject in full including a complete bibliography.
