Today, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) sells its book publishing list (RCOG Press) to Cambridge University Press.
Cambridge University Press will take over publication of the RCOG’s current medical book titles, and the two organisations will work together on future products.
The entire RCOG list will now be published by Cambridge University Press under joint RCOG–Cambridge branding.
This new partnership will enable the RCOG to extend its reach to under-resourced countries and support the international community with improved access to medical publishing.
Welcoming this collaboration, RCOG President, Dr Tony Falconer, said:
‘We look forward to working in partnership with Cambridge University Press as they expand their O&G list to cater to everyone caring for women and to achieve cross-over into other specialties, such as general practice and mental health.
‘This also ties in with the RCOG’s international objectives. Cambridge’s reach is truly global, making them the ideal partner to support our ambition to bring excellent learning and support to our international community, some of them working in difficult conditions.
‘The end goal for us both is very simple – to combine the RCOG’s expertise in medicine and Cambridge’s expertise in publishing to raise the standard of care for women all over the world.’
Cambridge University Press Chief Executive, Peter Phillips, added: ‘We are excited about the huge opportunities that our partnership with the RCOG makes possible through our joint commitment to excellence in medical publishing.’
