  • Rich XML article-level metadata in the JATS standard including references, persistent identifiers, copyright, and more

Track how readers are finding and engaging with your articles

Easily track how your articles are being read, downloaded, and shared online using publishing analytics. From the publishing analytics page your team can gather insights like:

  • Which of your articles are attracting the most readers
  • Where your readers are coming from (locations and referring websites)

Enhance your journal reading experience

Give your readers the best experience possible with superior article publishing and browsing functionality:

  • Publish traditional issues, or make articles available on a rolling basis
  • Add file and image attachments to the PDF viewer for easy reader access
  • Apply a default Creative Commons license to the body and metadata of all articles

Articles are beautifully displayed in journal websites — no redirects — with the ability for readers to save Citation (BibTex) to automate reference management.
