Getzville, NY (US) / Leiden (NL), Boston (US)

William S. Hein & Co, the world’s largest distributor of legal periodicals, and Brill, the international scholarly publisher, are announcing a major expansion of their longstanding partnership. Starting 2019 William S. Hein & Co., Inc. will provide access to the current content of all Brill | Nijhoff International Law periodicals on its award-winning platform, HeinOnline.

Starting in 2019, Hein will offer subscriptions to the Brill | Nijhoff Current Content Collections, which will provide access to the most recent three volumes of almost sixty periodicals. As before, Hein will continue to offer access to the Brill | Nijhoff archival content with a three-year moving wall. As a result, Hein is now able to offer its worldwide customer base the option to access the entire history of this highly prestigious list in International Law.

Kevin Marmion, CEO of William S. Hein & Co., Inc. remarks: “We are excited to add more of Brill’s fine content to our platform, and to provide the opportunity for our customers to access the most current content under our new agreement.”

Sam Bruinsma, SVP Business Development at Brill, comments: “For 15 years the back volumes of our law periodicals have been available on HeinOnline with an embargo. We are confident that Hein’s global customer base will greatly appreciate the opportunity to finally get access to the most recent editions of these periodicals on their platform as well.”

The Brill | Nijhoff Current Content Collections are expected to launch first quarter 2019. For more information on this media alert please contact Sam Bruinsma, SVP Business Development at Brill, at bruinsma@brill.com.
