The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), one of the institutes comprising the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), wanted to improve their readers’ online experience with their research content and make managing its delivery more efficient.
Their open-access, online-only flagship journal, Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP), was hosted on WordPress. But its 45-year-old archive of nearly 500 issues was housed separately. Keeping both platforms compliant with security and government regulations was complex and time-consuming. Compliance with the United States’ “508” regulations that govern assistive technologies for users with disabilities was especially challenging.
Because WordPress is not designed to support scholarly content, journal article metadata that improves discoverability had to be applied manually. Deposits to Crossref and PubMed were manual as well. And WordPress’s incompatibility with the JATS XML content format reduced the journal’s effectiveness with Crossref. This limited citations, which in turn risked negatively affecting the journal’s impact factor.
Atypon designed a new publication website for NIEHS on Literatum, Atypon’s online publishing and website development platform. NIEHS now has a single site for all its content: the journal and archives as well as conference abstracts, a library of high-resolution podcasts, and full-text HTML versions of Chinese-language translations of journal articles. Literatum has made their content much easier to manage, discover, access, and use.
The new fully mobile-responsive, continuous-publication website was designed and launched in just eight months thanks to UX 3.0, Atypon’s streamlined design-and-build system for modern, consumerized websites.
For NIEHS: Reduced site management and better compliance
For researchers: A modern publication website with an improved user experience
NIEHS is considering the addition of a streaming video library as well as a preprint server that will let authors publish papers early to solicit feedback.
