Wiley-Blackwell Launches New Mobile Applications for Select Health Publications

Hoboken, NJ, December 16, 2010—Wiley-Blackwell, the scientific, technical, medical and scholarly publishing business of John Wiley & Sons, Inc., is launching new mobile applications for selected health science journals, accessible via iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Symbian, PalmOS, and WAP devices.

The applications, which will be freely available, will allow for the mobile delivery of title and abstract listings of articles with a feature that will enable users to create a “reading list” of desired full-text articles, available from the user’s desktop computer through Wiley Online Library. The apps will provide the full-text of a selection of articles, and mobile content will be pushed to the mobile application as it is added to Wiley Online Library. Additional features include listings of upcoming events, society news, and publication information. Easily navigable, the applications present an optimized reading experience from various mobile devices.

The apps will deliver content for a variety of health science subjects including academic emergency medicine, cancer, cardiology, epilepsy, transplantation, rheumatology, sexual medicine, and hospital medicine.

The first application to be launched is for the American Journal of Transplantation (AJT), delivering fast, high quality content in organ and tissue transplantation and the related sciences. [snip].
