Harcourt Sells Off Accounting and Tax Products
Wolters Kluwer has acquired the professional tax, accounting and related products of Harcourt, Inc.'s Professional Publishing unit.
The products will become part of Aspen Publishers in Gaithersburg, MD., a member of Wolters Kluwer Legal, Tax & Business North America.
At the same time, Wolters Kluwer has sold its one-third interest in MD Consult to Harcourt so that Wolters can focus on subscription-based electronic information services through Ovid Technologies. Ovid Technologies, part of Wolters Kluwer International Health & Science, will gain electronic access to key clinical publications and information published by Harcourt.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
