ASME Enters Into Co-Branding Agreement with Wiley

Nov 23, 2015

 

ASME recently signed an agreement with global technical publisher John Wiley & Sons Inc. to develop and publish a collection of mechanical engineering books under the co-branded Wiley-ASME Press Series imprint. The new agreement brings the two organizations together in an initiative that combines ASME’s mission of serving global communities by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge with Wiley’s more than 200 years of publishing experience.

ASME and Wiley plan to publish 10 new titles per year, with the potential to increase this number in future years. New titles under the imprint, which will carry both the Wiley and the ASME Press logos, will be released in early 2016.

Books published under the new Wiley-ASME Press Series will target an audience that includes researchers; professional engineers and technical staff in industry; educators and trainers; industry analysts and researchers; and upper-level undergraduate and post-graduate-level students, according to the two organizations.

The first title in the series, Introduction to Dynamics and Control in Mechanical Engineering Systems, is scheduled to be published next April. The publication, by Cho Wing Solomon To of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is an introductory textbook covering dynamics and controls of engineering systems, with a specific focus on mechanical engineering systems. Copies of the book can be pre-ordered on the Wiley website.

ASME and Wiley also plan on releasing two additional titles — Nonlinear Regression Modelling by Russ Rhinehart from Oklahoma State University and Fundamentals of Mechanical Vibrations by Liang-Wu Cai of Kansas State University — under the new imprint within the first half of 2016.

In addition to the creation of the new co-branded imprint, the new agreement will also ASME members to receive a 20 percent discount on all Wiley books. To receive the discount, simply enter the code “ASM3” when ordering books on www.wiley.com.
