Recently, we announced a new Open Access hosting partnership with UCL Press. But just what does this mean, exactly?
Our customised hosting services are designed to help publishers showcase and distribute the Open Access journals that they publish to maximum effect. These are the natural extension of our marketing and indexing services, developed on the basis of our years of experience in content management architecture layered with advanced discovery technologies. By working with a range of publishers and content types, we have built a flexible platform to inter-connect scholarly articles at the level of their metadata, and establish a forum for user interaction around them. For Open Access journals, however, we are able to offer further advantages by embedding the full text articles within our discovery environment.
We have designed our Open Access hosting service with a range of beneficiaries in mind:
- We provide seamless, interactive, and engaging user access to all your published content, over a range of formats and types, maximising dissemination and re-use.
- We offer personalised branding and relationship management through our trusted network of strategic partners, including ORCID and CrossRef.
- We put you at the forefront of emergent technologies that are helping to revolutionise our industry through development of scholarly infrastructure.
- Embedded within our discovery environment and synchronous with our own content growth goals, our model drives users to your content, based on providing intuitive solutions and connections from semantic frameworks and discovery technologies.
