For Societies

Cambridge Media aims to create strong partnerships with Societies, enabling each Society's publication to grow and develop while at all times maintaining the highest levels of quality and integrity. This commitment has provided much success in bringing new journals to market as well as continuing to improve the quality of well-established journals.

A journal provides many advantages for a Society, including dissemination of expert knowledge, a clear channel of communication between its members, as well as a sense of ownership and camaraderie between the members of a Society. It also provides significant benefits in raising the awareness of the Society, increasing their profile locally, nationally and internationally and aiding the development of special interest groups.

Cambridge Media has a strong track record producing well-established journals, enjoying much success in creating significant improvements in the bottom line performance of many titles. We also take great pride in producing new publications, such as the recently launched Journal of Children and Young People's Health, to allow specialist communication to specialist target markets.

Cambridge Media has its own web-based electronic platform for the exclusive use of its partner Societies to publish journals electronically. This platform is currently used to publish in English, Chinese, Spanish, French and Portuguese and can publish in other languages. And we partner with ScholarOne to provide a manuscript management system for editors, reviewers and authors.

As most Societies will understand, Scholarly Publishing requires a painstaking approach to ensure accuracy and quality and can therefore be deemed an expensive process. However, a good publisher should also be able to optimise the financial position of their partner Society. Cambridge Media has developed and initiated innovative ways, such as revenue sharing, to improve the financial performance of many Society publications. Our expansive range of journals also provides the opportunity for cross publication advertising, further increasing the revenue generated through the partnership.

In summary, Cambridge Media is able to provide the experience, commitment and service to ensure your Society achieves the optimum return from its publications. Contact Greg Paull to discuss the benefits of Cambridge Media being your publishing partner.
