As a publisher, one of the organization’s key focal points is managing over 80 journal sites and many more books. There is an increasing need for content, community, and interactivity around journals and specific topics as they want to be the go-to place where scientists find info and collaborate on research around the globe.
Collaboration, maintainability, and sustainability were the major challenges when IOS Press was looking for a technology partner to take their digital platform to the next step. They were working with different third parties, freelancers, and volunteers on a multitude of websites and platforms. There was little to no interoperability between sites, no re-use for other projects, leading to double work and sites that get left behind.
