Research Partnerships


Dr. Robert Kerstein, editor of the Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine (2 Volumes), was able to associate his forward-thinking research with Tekscan®, the creators of the patented T-Scan technology outlined within his research. He connected the leaders of Tekscan® with IGI Global’s Marketing Team to help create a powerful partnership. The organizations collaborated on integrating the Handbook into dental programs around the United States, showcased the publication at conferences, created a specialized digital campaign, and more. This led to an increase in the visibility and citation impact of the publication, the creation of new research partnerships and opportunities for the contributors, as well as increased creditability for the research and T-Scan technology. View Dr. Kerstein’s latest research in the Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine (3 Volumes), which was released in July 2019. For more information regarding this partnership, view the full comprehensive digital brochure for the publication here.

For IGI Global Editors and Authors: As the majority of the research that IGI Global publishes is focused on applied research, if you believe that your publication would be of benefit to an organization or corporation that currently utilized patent technologies, methodologies, or advanced finding within your publication, please contact IGI Global, as we are highly qualified to collaborate with these individuals.
