ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers)
The American Society of Civil Engineers represents more than 145,000 members of the civil engineering profession in 174 countries. Founded in 1852, ASCE is the nation’s oldest engineering society. ASCE stands at the forefront of a profession that plans, designs, constructs, and operates society’s economic and social engine – the built environment – while protecting and restoring the natural environment. Through the expertise of its active membership, ASCE is a leading provider of technical and professional conferences and continuing education, the world’s largest publisher of civil engineering content, and an authoritative source for codes and standards that protect the public.
ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers)
Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is the premier professional membership organization for more than 127,000 mechanical engineers and associated members worldwide. ASME also conducts one of the world's largest technical publishing operations in the world, offering thousands of titles including some of the profession's most prestigious journals, conference proceedings, and ASME Press books.
ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials)
ASTM is a standards development organization that serves as an open forum for the development of international standards. Over 12,000 ASTM standards operate globally, defined and set by ASTM, improve the lives of millions every day. Combined with innovative business services, ASTM standards enhance performance and help everyone have confidence in the things they buy and use, from the toy in a child’s hand to the aircraft overhead. Working across borders, disciplines and industries ASTM harness the expertise of over 30,000 members to create consensus and improve performance in manufacturing and materials, products and processes, systems and services.
Consortium for educational Communication
The Consortium for Educational Communication popularly known as CEC is one of the Inter University Centres set up by the University Grants Commission of India. It has been established with the goal of addressing the needs of Higher Education through the use of powerful medium of Television along with the appropriate use of emerging Information Communication Technology (ICT). Realizing the potential and power of television to act as means of Educational Knowledge dissemination, UGC started the Countrywide Classroom Programmes in the year 1984. For production of such programmes Media Centres were set up at 6 Universities. Subsequently CEC emerged in 1993 as a nodal agency to coordinate, guide & facilitate such Educational production at the National level. Today 21 Media Centres are working towards achieving this goal under the umbrella of CEC.
Emerald Group Publishing
Emerald's specialist collections in fields such as Engineering, Information and Knowledge Management, Operation Logistics and Quality, Education, Library Studies and Marketing offering focused international research in a range of subject fields. Its management collection features over 80,000 articles from over 200 titles. The collection continues to disseminate the latest thinking, from authors at 95 of the Financial Times Top 100 business schools and forms an essential part of the research library at most of these institutions.
IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)
IEEE publishes nearly a third of the world’s technical literature in electrical engineering, computer science, and electronics. This includes approximately 180 transactions, journals, and magazines published annually. In cooperation with John Wiley and Sons, Inc., IEEE also produces technical books, monographs, guides, and textbooks. IEEE journals are consistently among the most highly cited in electrical and electronics engineering, telecommunications, and other technical fields. The IEEE Xplore Digital Library contains more than 3.5 million documents from IEEE and IEEE journals, transactions, magazines, letters, conference proceedings, and active IEEE standards.
ISID (Institute for Studies in Industrial Development)
The Institute for Studies in Industrial Development (ISID), successor to the Corporate Studies Group (CSG), is a national-level policy research organization in the public domain and is affiliated to the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR). Developing on the initial strength of studying India's industrial regulations, ISID has gained varied expertise in the analysis of the issues thrown up by the changing policy environment. ISID has developed databases on various aspects of the Indian economy, particularly concerning industry and the corporate sector. It has created On-line Indexes of Indian Social Science Journals (OLI) and Press Clippings on diverse social science subjects. These have been widely acclaimed as valuable sources of information for researchers studying India's socio-economic development.
