NEW YORK, New York and SANTA CLARA, California, August 6, 2009--Atypon Systems Inc., and Institutional Investor Journals (IIJ) announced today the recent launch of a new, integrated online publishing and e-commerce site for the IIJ journals, guide series and backfile article collections.

The new IIJ e-publishing site (http://www.iijournals.com) is powered by Atypon's proven and trusted Literatum technology. It features a very polished UI design, including dynamic site elements such as video interviews and testimonials that highlight the editors and opinion leaders that drive IIJ's publications. Content discoverability on the site is enhanced with the inclusion of lists of most read and most cited articles. In addition, links to related blog posts provide supplementary resources for readers, creating a most engaging publishing site. All of these features are updated regularly to maintain user interest in the site and drive e-commerce.

Users have the option to purchase subscriptions, single print issues, or individual articles; and via integration with IIJ's fulfilment house, existing subscribers are able to renew their subscriptions.

Atypon worked closely with IIJ to integrate the e-publishing site with Editorial Manager for manuscript submission, and with AdTech Helios ad server for delivery of paid and in-house advertising.

IIJ's nine journals will be presented in both full text HTML and PDF Plus format.

Kevin Cohn, Director of Client Services for Atypon Systems commented: "We're very proud to have built this new platform for Institutional Investor Journals. Literatum will make IIJ's valuable content more easily discovered and used, and its powerful administration tools will enable IIJ to monetize that content to the fullest extent."

Allison Adams, Publisher of Institutional Investor Journals added: "In working with Atypon we have launched the premier global technical research platform for the institutional investing community. It was designed with both the casual visitor and rigorous researcher in mind. The Atypon system serves as the perfect platform to continuingly evolve the iijournals.com user experience."
