Executing a digital business technology transformation under the leadership of CEO Kelly Shergill,
Peter Lang will transition all of their journals and books onto PubFactory in Summer 2016.

Peter Lang’s move to the PubFactory online publishing platform will unify their content and business operations to further strengthen Peter Lang’s growing academic brand in the global marketplace.

For over 40 years, Peter Lang has published academic research worldwide and has bridged the gap between theory, research, and teaching. A major shift occurred in 2015 when new management and new ownership took over with Kelly Shergill, CEO and Deputy Chairman of the Board, at the helm whose primary imperative is to drive Peter Lang to the forefront of the rapidly changing international publishing industry.

Kelly Shergill, CEO of Peter Lang AG says, “We are excited to be hosting all of our 55,000+ books and
17+ journals on PubFactory. PubFactory provides Peter Lang with the digital technology to optimize the presentation of our journals and books in a single, unified platform. The cooperation between PubFactory and Peter Lang has been exceptionally good with both companies having talented teams focusing on the user experience. Peter Lang is an international, multi-language publisher with a significant front list serving a dynamic global market and PubFactory ensures that we can accelerate and adjust as our business evolves.”

Jose Fossi, VP of Client Services for Safari says, “Today, PubFactory is host to 1,100+ journals and
300,000+ books. We are thrilled to partner with Peter Lang to address their content needs and to support their engagement in new ways with a scholarly community that is more tech savvy than ever.
