University of Toronto Press and De Gruyter are proud to announce that they have formed a partnership for the worldwide sales of electronic publications. These include selected new releases and a comprehensive backlist of around 2,000 e-books. The transatlantic sales cooperation expands the global reach of University of Toronto Press and strengthens the portfolio of De Gruyter with outstanding, research-intensive content and world-renowned authors. This arrangement makes University of Toronto Press the first Canadian university publisher to partner with the De Gruyter Online platform.
“De Gruyter has impressed us with its international sales team and its innovative business models for libraries,” says John Yates, President of University of Toronto Press. “The collaboration offers a great opportunity to increase the visibility and accessibility of our quality-rich publications worldwide.”
The University of Toronto Press, one of North America’s premier scholarly presses, was founded in 1901 and is the leading university publisher in Canada. It publishes a highly regarded academic list covering all humanities and social sciences fields, by widely acclaimed authors such as Brent D. Shaw, John K. Noyes, and Siegfried Wenzel, and a range of series including the Collected Works of Erasmus, the Letters of Benjamin Disraeli, and Toronto Iberic.
“The partnership with University of Toronto Press is a big win for De Gruyter,” says Carsten Buhr, Managing Director of De Gruyter. “We’re confident that their content that we’re now offering through the De Gruyter Online platform will be of great interest to scholarly libraries and researchers worldwide.”
