The author describes the editorial and marketing strategy behind the successful launch of the new title and the challenges facing a publisher when launching an 'online-only' title. The article discusses how IChemE's established presence in the chemical engineering community benefited the new journal's launch and concludes with a list of key points to remember when launching a new product – with particular relevance to online titles.
