Information for ICP Authors

Starting 1st April 2016, World Scientific Publishing Group restructured the brand and consolidated the various imprints under the World Scientific branding. This also applied to the Imperial College imprint. The current Imperial College Press staff are already and have always been integrated with World Scientific Publishing, and so all current procedures and contacts remain in place.

This move enables World Scientific Publishing Group to streamline the marketing and distribution of the Group's titles and products and better serve customers. We believe the restructuring will also improve our production processes, enabling us to better serve all our authors.

We look forward to serving our valued authors, readers and the academic community with utmost dedication.

If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Jennifer Brough at jbrough@wspc.co.uk.
