SANTA CLARA, CA Atypon Systems and BLOOMINGTON, IN Indiana University Press – June 7, 2006 – announced today at the SSP Annual Meeting that they will be partnering to develop INscribe, the new IUP online journals publishing platform, utilizing Atypon's leading edge and future focused technology.
Indiana University Press will be using Atypon Premium, a full service information platform for electronic publishing that is a feature-rich solution tailored for publishers who are aware of the importance of promoting their brand to the scholarly community.
IUP chose Atypon as its publishing partner because Atypon fully understands and supports its market and because Atypon's technology platform answers well its subscribers' needs. IUP will sign with Atypon on July 1, 2006 and will launch INscribe in January 2007.
Atypon's software was designed to give publishers maximum flexibility and control of their content, business models, and users. Atypon provides services ranging from a cost effective, simple-to-use content hosting and delivery service to a set of sophisticated tools and custom solutions for hands-on management of online content.
Kathryn Caras, IU Press's Director of Electronic and Serials Publishing, said "We couldn't be more excited about the prospect of working with Atypon on INscribe. They come to us well recommended by industry colleagues, and we look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with them, especially as it benefits our subscribers. We are especially impressed with the many features of Atypon Premium that will help to enhance our readers' experience and ability to use to its fullest potential the content we publish."
