Maney acquires audiology titles from Wiley-Blackwell

Maney Publishing has announced the purchase of two quarterly journals from John Wiley & Sons: Cochlear Implants International and Deafness & Education International.

This, says Maney, establishes a decisive publishing commitment to the clinical treatment and education of the deaf.

The acquisition also reflects Maney’s continuing involvement and expertise in publishing for specialist societies and professional organisations. Deafness & Education International is the official publication of both the British Association for Teachers of the Deaf (BATOD) and the National Association of Australian Teachers of the Deaf (NAATD). Cochlear Implants International is endorsed by the British Cochlear Implants Group.

Maney’s Publishing Director, Mark Simon, is delighted by the acquisition of these two titles: “The new journals represent a move into two complementary subject specialities, and come with important publishing alliances, and good prospects for Maney and all those involved in the journals.”

Silvana Marciano, Journal Publisher, Professional, Wiley-Blackwell, commented: “Wiley is divesting Cochlear Implants International and Deafness & Education International to concentrate our resources on our larger subject areas and are pleased to have found a good home for these titles in Maney Publishing. We want to take this opportunity to thank the British Association for Teachers of the Deaf, the National Association of Australian Teachers of the Deaf, and the British Cochlear Implants Group for their collaborative partnership in these publications.”
