Publishing Technology’s recent press release highlighted their 2014 new contract wins. An extract is below:
“ingentaconnect, which was redesigned with added functionality and features, has enjoyed strong successes during the year and has seen a 10 per cent rise in the number of publishers choosing to host their publications on the platform. The division signed new deals in 2014 with 27 major academic and professional publishers, including The Society for American Archaeology, Peter Lang Publishing, The Open University, The Chicago Linguistic Society, Manchester University Press, Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, The American Society on Aging and Karnac Books, who join the list of over 250 publishers already hosting their book and journal content digitally on ingentaconnect.
The year also saw Publishing Technology welcome five new clients onto its advance enterprise system. Editions Lefebvre Sarrut (ELS) is currently rolling out the system’s Order to Cash module across three of its subsidiary companies, while Macmillan Distribution (MDL) recently went live with a new subscriptions platform also running on Order to Cash. In addition, Egmont Kids Media launched its new global contracts and rights system on advance this month and Peking University Press became the latest publisher to sign up for the product suite in 2014. Further success in the strategically important Chinese market was also seen as China Law Press saw its installation completed, taking the number of publishers now operating with advance up to ten.
Two pub2web contracts were signed with new significant customers, The Society for General Microbiology and the Zhonghua Book Company, one of the most prestigious trade and academic publishing houses in China, while The American Institute of Physics and John Benjamins launched their sites on the custom online hosting solution.”
