SANTA CLARA, Calif.—June 15, 2010— Atypon™, a leading provider of software to the publishing and media industry, today announced that it will power the new publishing website for Ammons Scientific, publisher of two prestigious scholarly journals covering the disciplines of psychology, perception, and motor skills.

Ammons Scientific, an independent publisher, encourages scientific originality and creativity. Their journals, Perceptual and Motor Skills and Psychological Reports, were established by the company's founders, R.B. and C.H. Ammons, and have grown consistently since that time.

The new publishing website will launch this fall and be powered by Literatum™ Premium Edition. Ammons Scientific's authors, reviewers, and subscribers will all benefit from an improved user experience, a more powerful search engine, and advanced personalization options such as alerts and favorites.

"As a small, privately-held publisher, we're very selective when it comes to choosing partners and making investments," said Stephanie Isbell, CEO of Ammons Scientific. "In Atypon we've found a partner that will allow us to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by future technologies."

"Literatum is always evolving and ahead of the competition," said Audrey Melkin, Director of Business Development for Atypon. "With each release, such as the recent Literatum 10.1 release, we introduce dozens of important improvements and new features. Ammons Scientific will benefit from this robust product roadmap."
