SANTA CLARA, Calif.—12 July 2011— Atyponâ„¢ today announced that Literatumâ„¢, the publishing platform used by Annual Reviews, Institutional Investor Journals, World Scientific, and other leading professional and scholarly publishers, is now used to host more than 11 million articles.

Atypon passed 10 million articles hosted by Literatum just seven months ago, and will pass 12 million articles hosted in an even shorter amount of time. The growth is driven primarily by the addition of new publisher clients; a small portion comes from clients' back file digitization efforts and organic growth.

"No other publishing platform provider has the scale that Literatum has," said Kevin Cohn, Vice President of Operations for Atypon. "This scale allows us to rapidly add new capabilities, and we expect to continue our torrid pace of growth throughout the remainder of this year and into the future."

Literatum enables publishers to maximize the discoverability of their journals, books, reference works, databases, and other types of content, and to implement new business models, all with easy-to-use tools, backed by excellent business and technical support from Atypon.
