Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2008 -- Reprints Desk, Inc., the content workflow company (http://www.reprintsdesk.com), today announced that Elsevier is expanding its existing relationship with Reprints Desk to include the ability to sell and deliver Elsevier reprints. The agreement further enhances the service speed and ordering options for Reprints Desk clients in life sciences who procure scientific articles in bulk for use in sales and marketing, and supports Elsevier's ongoing commitment to ensure continued growth in key sales channels.
The agreement between Reprints Desk and Elsevier is effective immediately and enables Reprints Desk to manage orders received from its growing base of clients in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, and healthcare communications. Reprints Desk will leverage the agreement to deliver Elsevier content more quickly and efficiently, and integrate its new capabilities with previously acquired scientific, technical, and medical (STM) printer Pools Press (http://www.poolspress.com).

"We want to work with inventive, customer-oriented reprint channel partners who extend Elsevier's ability to serve the healthcare market," said Luis Portero, Elsevier's Vice President of Commercial Sales, U.S. Journals.
"This agreement between Elsevier and Reprints Desk demonstrates our shared emphasis on partnering in ways that will be most beneficial to customers," said Jan Peterson, Head of Publisher Relations at Reprints Desk.
