ICE secures publishing agreement with Brazil

More than 100 officials and dignitaries from the Brazilian Government and education bodies will be attending a ceremony at the ICE next week to mark the signing of a major publishing agreement between ICE’s commercial arm, Thomas Telford Limited (TTL), and Brazilian government-funded university consortium CAPES.

The agreement provides over 150 affiliated universities across Brazil with access to the ICE’s world-renowned civil engineering journals dating back to 1836, via the ICE Virtual Library website.

The collection includes leading research papers, case studies and examples of best practice on worldwide engineering projects. The publishing deal is one of the biggest for TTL and also forms part of the ICE’s wider aim to promote best practice in civil engineering beyond the UK.

ICE director general Tom Foulkes, who will be speaking at the ceremony, said: “This agreement reflects the value we attach to our publishing content and how important it is to us that this is recognised both in the UK and across the world. Our commitment to producing the best research and practice information is ongoing.”

The ICE Virtual Library is the most extensive online library of engineering information in the world. It provides a sophisticated, fully searchable platform for both researchers and practising engineers to access the content published by the ICE over three centuries.

The contract signature ceremony will be held at the ICE headquarters on 30 November 2009.
