Wageningen Academic Publishers acquires ‘Comparative Exercise Physiology’

16 February 2012, Wageningen

Wageningen Academic Publishers is pleased to announce the acquisition of ‘Comparative Exercise Physiology’. This international journal of exercise physiology, biomechanics and nutrition was previously published by Cambridge University Press. The journal will be published by Wageningen Academic Publishers starting in 2012 with Volume 8. The journal transfer will ensure further growth and continued delivery of high-quality content to the exercise physiology community.

Mike Jacobs, Managing Director at Wageningen Academic Publishers, said, “We are delighted to add ‘Comparative Exercise Physiology’ to our portfolio. It ties in nicely with the equine titles that we have published for years. It is our aim to use our experience in this topic and our personal approach to re-launch the journal. Together with our motivated editors we look forward to expanding the journal’s reach and readership.”

In the new setting Dr. David Marlin, David Marlin Consulting Ltd., United Kingdom and Prof. Kenneth Harrington McKeever, Department of Animal Sciences, State University of New Jersey, USA are the editors-in-chief. Both editors were already involved with 'Comparative Exercise Physiology' before the transition.

Being asked for his opinion on the journal transfer, David Marlin replied “The acquisition by Wageningen Academic Publishers is an exciting development in the the life of ‘Comparative Exercise Physiology’ and both Ken and I are impressed by WAP’s plans to take the journal forward to build upon the excellent start established by Cambridge University Press. The cultivation of excellence in the publication of new and exciting scientific information on athletic animals will continue at WAP with a goal to eventually achieve Pubmed listing and obtaining an ISI rating.”
