Elsevier is the new publisher of The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a division of Wolters Kluwer, has published the monthly journal for seven years. A spokesperson for the journal told MM&M that five potential publishers were in the running. “Elsevier was chosen based on the belief that it was best for the long-term growth of the journal—especially in the international arena,” she said.

Springer has hit a milestone in its efforts to digitize: the company said more than 200,000 titles are now part of the iBookstore inventory. The Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology, Pattern Recognition and ­Machine Learning and the series Graduate Texts in Mathe­matics are among the ebook titles being offered.
