Wolters Kluwer announces publishing collaboration with leading oncology society

Wolters Kluwer, Health, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has entered into a multi-year agreement with the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO®), the world’s leading organization of its kind representing nearly 45,000 oncology professionals who care for people with cancer.

Under this agreement, beginning in January 2021, Wolters Kluwer will publish ASCO’s portfolio of five medical specialty journals, including its flagship publication the Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO), one of the most highly cited oncology journals in the world.

Wolters Kluwer will focus on expanding ASCO’s journal readership globally through access and distribution on the Ovid® medical research platform, among other channels, as well as the potential to reach members and practitioners through new digital channels.

“This new collaboration with Wolters Kluwer represents an exciting opportunity for ASCO’s family of journals as we look to the future of publishing,” said Clifford A. Hudis, MD, FACP, FASCO, Chief Executive Officer of ASCO. “We are very pleased to now have Wolters Kluwer’s global position, expertise in medical specialty publishing, and digital solutions behind our journal portfolio. Ultimately, we believe this will help expand the reach of our content and help as many practitioners and cancer patients worldwide as possible.”

“We are honored to be selected by the American Society of Clinical Oncology as their journal publisher to grow and expand the reach of this prestigious portfolio of oncology research and practice publications,” said Greg Samios, President and CEO, Wolters Kluwer, Health Learning, Research & Practice. “As a leader in its field, ASCO is continually innovating to keep pace with both research and practice advancements. It is our privilege to partner with ASCO’s team to evolve and deliver new digital solutions that ensure practitioners have the latest evidence-based oncology research to improve patient care and outcomes.”
