SANTA CLARA, Calif.—6 December 2011—Atypon®, a leading provider of software to the professional and scholarly publishing industry, today announced that the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) has selected the Literatum™ publishing platform to power its new publications website.
SIAM exists to ensure the strongest interactions between mathematics and other scientific and technological communities through membership activities, publication of journals and books, and conferences. SIAM publishes 15 peer-reviewed journals and approximately 25 books each year, and has a backlist of 400 titles.
The new digital library will use Literatum for Mobile™ to be accessible using modern smartphone and tablet devices. In addition, more than one billion users will be able to register and log in with one click using their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn accounts, making personalization easier than ever before.
"After a careful review of the options, we concluded that Atypon's combination of technology, thought leadership, and support was the best choice for us," said David Marshall, Publisher for SIAM. "Our new website will offer an improved experience for researchers, contributors, and librarians."
"Atypon is growing, and Literatum is always evolving," said Audrey Melkin, Director of Business Development for Atypon. "SIAM will benefit from a worldwide development and support infrastructure—we now have five full-fledged offices—and a robust product development roadmap."
