The article focuses on the strategic planning by New Jersey-based educational publishing house John Wiley & Sons Inc. to improve revenue from its U.S. higher education business in the second half of 2008. The company believes that the basis for the improved outlook is a strong publishing schedule and the recognition in that six-month period deferred revenue from sales of WileyPlus. It also discusses the negative effect of the re-importation and sale of textbooks on the company's revenue.
