I'm a publisher - how can I make sure my content is covered?
We are focusing on strengthening the scope and relevance of Inspec, expanding our coverage of quality titles in the core Inspec subject areas, as well as identifying new areas of research and content focus. We recently launched the Inspec Content Advisory Board, an external panel of subject experts who will help us shape our editorial policy to meet future research needs. We will also be establishing an Inspec User Group to help support development of Inspec A&I and Inspec Analytics. If you are interested in participating in the Content Advisory Board or the User Group, please contact us.
