The American Society for Cell Biology and Bone & Joint Publishing Announce the Migration of Their Journals to Atypon’s Literatum Online Publishing Platform

April 19, 2017

Santa Clara, CA—April 19, 2017—The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) and Bone & Joint Publishing, the new imprint of the British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery, are moving their journals to Atypon’s Literatum platform, becoming the eleventh and twelfth publishers to sign with Atypon since January 2016.

ASCB’s two prestigious journals—Molecular Biology of the Cell and CBE/Life Sciences Education—will launch on Literatum in early 2018.

“We’re looking forward to being able to respond better to the needs of our members, authors, and researchers,” said Mark Leader, ASCB’s Publications Director. “Literatum will allow us to change our sites’ user interfaces and user experiences easily and quickly, while improving our bottom line by significantly lowering our publishing costs.”

The Bone & Joint Journal, Bone & Joint Research, Bone & Joint 360, EFORT Open Reviews, and Orthopaedic Proceedings will join the publisher’s open access Journal of Children’s Orthopaedics, which was launched on Literatum earlier this year.

“Atypon’s significant, ongoing investment in Literatum and the company’s long history of shaping scholarly publishing technology were important factors in our decision to move all of our content,” noted Peter Richardson, the Managing Director of Bone & Joint Publishing. “We also wanted all of our Bone & Joint Publishing content to be together on a single platform.”

“Our technology philosophy has always been to develop solutions that both benefit our customers and advance the industry,” said Georgios Papadopoulos, Atypon’s founder and CEO. “Literatum will provide our two newest clients with automation tools for moving them from simply delivering their content online to actively marketing and selling it.”

Atypon’s customers include SAGE, the University of Chicago Press, the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the American Pharmacists Association, the American Physiological Society (APS), the Edinburgh University Press, Human Kinetics, and Health Affairs, all of whom announced the migration of, or launched their journals on, Literatum in 2016.
