Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the addition of ten content providers who will offer content via the Knovel platform, strengthening a range of disciplines including civil engineering, chemical engineering and earth sciences among others. The publishers recently added to the Knovel platform, include De Gruyter, J. Ross Publishing and eight other trusted content providers that collectively boost Knovel's roster of content providers to more than 120 authoritative sources.

Elsevier further extends Knovel's lead in offering comprehensive, diverse content to engineers, providing the data required to help solve the critical engineering problems. Knovel is a cloud-based application that integrates technical information with analytical and search tools.

"Knovel's forward-thinking approach to making content more actionable and discoverable makes the platform an ideal place for J. Ross Publishing," said Stephen Buda, VP Business Development for J. Ross Publishing. "Knovel provides engineers with trusted information that they use on a daily basis, making it an excellent fit for deep coverage in civil engineering and geotechnical topics. Knovel's reporting and analysis also allows our team to gain insight, take action and stay ahead of the curve in identifying emerging content trends."

The expansion of Knovel's list of esteemed content providers demonstrates the continued success of Knovel's publisher relationship program. Elsevier has developed a strong program for maintaining multi-faceted mutually beneficial relationships with publishers. This program provides engineers with access to a diverse range of premier content, while increasing exposure for the content providers.

"Deepening our engagement with the publishing community ensures that we can offer the most comprehensive access to trusted content and workflow tools to engineers, helping them to find solutions for the complex problems they face," said Knovel's Meagan Cooke, Senior Director of Product Management, Content. "Publishers value Knovel as a channel for their content, helping them connect with an engaged engineering audience, but also for the increasing opportunities for brand exposure."
