CompositesWorld’s SourceBook 2016 team: “It’s not too late”

The SourceBook's editors allow extra time for composites industry suppliers to renew/update listing data and ensure their places in the 2016 print edition.

CompositesWorld, the publisher of CompositesWorld magazine, is in the last stage of preparation for print publication of SourceBook 2015. Although the deadline lapsed this past Friday, Aug. 28, and a large majority of past listees have elected to renew their listings for 2016, it was clear that a number of factors — among them, extended vacations in European regions — prevented some suppliers from renewing/updating in a timely fashion.

 “We reached the end of our scheduled renewal campaign but realized that there were still a number of companies who have been with us for years but haven’t updated their listings for the 2015 directory,” reports Mike Musselman, the SourceBook's managing editor. “So we’re extending our deadline — we don’t want anyone to be left out. And, just to be clear — we always have some questions in this regard — yes, the listing is free of charge. Renewal is free as well. We offer listings to industry suppliers as a service to them and to our loyal readers.”

The extended deadline for renewal is Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Notice of the deadline extension, and complete instructions on how to access the SourceBook online listing form, will be sent out, tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 2, via e-mail, to all SourceBook listees that have not yet responded.

Suppliers who don’t receive the e-mail can check whether or not their SourceBook listing already has been updated by visiting the Web version of the SourceBook at

NOTE: Companies with a check mark after their names have been renewed for 2016.

No check mark? No listing in the print edition. “Contact me immediately to ensure that the listing is up-to-date and included in 2016,” advises Musselman, who can be reached at “The renewal process is done online and can take as little as one minute.”
