Phoenix and Springer sign deal at Beijing International Book Fair

Phoenix Publishing and Media, one of the largest publishing groups in China, has signed a new strategic 3-year publishing partnership with Springer, the global academic publisher that is part of Springer Nature.  The deal was signed at the Beijing International Book Fair which wrapped up on 16 June.

Springer and Phoenix Publishing and Media will jointly publish and disseminate China’s best research results to global readers, share Chinese culture and academic thoughts with the world, and ‘promote mutual understanding between the East and the West’.

The new co-publishing programme will focus on social sciences and humanities titles.  The first book in the publishing programme Dictionary of Chinese Cultural Knowledge, was published in Chinese in 2021 by Jiangsu Phoenix Education Press. Springer will publish the English edition; and they intend to produce the German edition in the near future.

Springer and Phoenix Publishing Media will also co-publish and produce new work under both names, with Phoenix focusing on the Chinese market and Springer focusing on the international market.

Recent data shows that China is the world’s leading producer of research articles (553,233 in 2020). Phoenix Publishing and Media is expanding in scholarly publishing through collaborations with international partners, among them Taylor & Francis and Brill in addition to Springer Nature.

Niels Peter Thomas, Director for Books, Global President of Greater China, Springer Nature, said: “We are honoured to work hand in hand with Phoenix Publishing & Media Co., Ltd. Mutual trust and respect have been established by initiating cooperation on important reference books. The success of this project demonstrates the strong alignment of our vision for intergroup co-publishing. In the future, the two parties will jointly publish and disseminate China’s best research results to global readers, share Chinese culture and academic thoughts with the world, and promote mutual understanding between the East and the West.”

 

 

Xu Hai, Editor-in-Chief of Phoenix Publishing and Media said:

“This announcement marks a new phase of our partnership with Springer as we start down the road of joint publishing. Therefore, today’s signing is a milestone and heralds a new beginning. We believe that through the cooperative publication of academic thoughts, the light of thought can truly illuminate the mutual understanding and mutual reference of diverse civilizations.”

The fair hosted more than 2,500 exhibitors, according to organisers, with around 60% drawn from overseas, representing 56 regions and countries.  Most publishers seemed please with the change of venue to the China National Convention Centre.
