Springer and T.M.C. Asser Press, a prominent Dutch specialist publisher for international law, have signed a publishing agreement for four English-language law journals: Netherlands International Law Review, European Business Organization Law Review, European Constitutional Law Review, and Hague Journal on the Rule of Law. Under the agreement, effective January 2015, Springer is to handle production, marketing and distribution of T.M.C. Asser Press’s journals. Asser Press will continue to be responsible for the program planning. All journals will continue to be branded as T.M.C. Asser Press titles. They were previously distributed by Cambridge University Press.
Springer has been handling Asser Press’s law book program since August 2010. It now comprises more than 230 titles. In 2013 Springer also became responsible for the distribution of The International Sports Law Journal, an Asser Press publication. By co-publishing the four additional journals, Springer now handles the entire English-language journal and book program for the Dutch law publisher.
“The four Asser Press journals will strengthen our international portfolio of international law. I am happy that we can expand our successful collaboration in the field of journal publishing with these high impact journals,” said Brigitte Reschke, Executive Editor Law at Springer.
Philip van Tongeren, Director and Publisher of T.M.C. Asser Press, said “By also entering a partnership with Springer on all our Asser Press English language journals, our journals will be marketed and sold through Springer’s excellent worldwide marketing and sales network, and at the same time taking advantage of Springer’s innovative production and electronic distribution systems. This will make our journals accessible to millions of readers worldwide. A great benefit for our journals and their contributors.”
