SANTA CLARA, Calif.—August 5, 2010—Atypon™, a leading provider of software to the publishing and media industry, today announced that Informa Healthcare, one of the world's leading medical and scientific publishers, is now publishing books on the redesigned platform.

Informa Healthcare, which is a division of Informa plc (LSE: INF), publishes authoritative research and analysis as well as up-to-date news for all sectors of the healthcare and life sciences community. The platform is powered by Atypon's Literatum™ software.

Informa Healthcare decided to add more than 600 book titles to the 170 journals on to allow users to search across content type to easily obtain critical research. Expanding their use of Literatum, which supports multiple content types on one platform, was a natural decision.

"Partnering with Atypon to deliver a single publishing platform for both books and journals allows us to better serve our community," said Phil Garner, Divisional Managing Director of Informa Healthcare. "We now provide this even more comprehensive resource to our users—saving them valuable research time—while having the utmost flexibility in managing and delivering content across our portfolio."
