STM Publishing Companies

The STM market is split evenly between scientific and technical publishing and medical publishing. On top of the market is Reed Elsevier, which has held the No.1 spot in the professional publishing industry for more than a decade. Reed Elsevier leads the global STM publishing market. 

After Reed Elsevier, competition among top STM publishing companies remains stiff, with company Wolters Kluwer behind in the No.2 position.

The competitive balance between these STM publishing companies will shift in 2012 as Wolters Kluwer plans to divest its pharma business and Thomson Reuters exists health care altogether.
