IPSWICH, Mass. — June 18, 2015 — EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and Masaryk University Press have collaborated to offer more than 80 Czech titles via EBSCO eBooks™. The titles from Masaryk University Press will provide libraries with more multidisciplinary Czech titles representing a wide range of fields – including social science, historiography, linguistics and literary science, archaeology, genetics and many others – from highly specialized scientific publications to significant books aimed at the general public.
Director of Masaryk University Press, Dr. Alena Mizerová says “I believe that the cooperation with EBSCO will make our books available to readers from all corners of the world and that we will succeed in further extending this cooperation in the future.” Dr Mizerová adds that her team is already preparing another batch of interesting titles for EBSCO.
With 400 new titles of books and e-books and 50 scholarly journals released annually, Masaryk University Press is one of the most productive academic publishers in the Czech Republic.
