HOBOKEN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--John Wiley and Sons Inc.,  (NYSE:JWA) (NYSE:JWB), today announced the launch of a comprehensive research publishing learning program, the Wiley Researcher Academy, unique in testing knowledge and understanding.

Professor Aaron Ciechanover, Winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, remarked: “Getting educated and trained in the skills one needs in order to publish research results, hypotheses, and models has never been more important, in particular for young scientists, but also for the more established among us: Wiley has taken an important initiative in developing an on-line platform that provides that education and assesses participants’ progress. There is no doubt it will help scientists increase the impact of their studies.”
