Publishing Technology is delighted to announce the latest release of the
IngentaConenct scholarly hosting platform, which I wanted to share with
you since it includes a number of enhancements to benefit both
publishers and users.
Improved content discoverability via Summon(tm), integration with
WorldPay, making online transactions even safer and more secure than
ever, as well as advanced social bookmarking options, have all been
included in the latest release of the service to offer users even
greater ease and flexibility when searching, viewing and sharing
articles on IngentaConnect.
Forthcoming Shibboleth and COUNTER 3 compliance, as well as
Rightsconnect and Rightslink licensing on content (offering publishers
and users alike a more streamlined and efficient process to enable
instant permissions to license and re-use content) will all be part and
parcel of the latest release as well.
If you would like any further information on the site's latest
developments, or would like to discuss implementing Rightsconnect, or
Rightslink to your content, Publishing Technology will be at Online
Information at Olympia, London (stand 621) next week - 1st-3rd December
- where we'd be delighted to discuss this with you.

Publishing Technology, the largest provider of software and services for
the publishing industry, is pleased to announce the latest release of
its flagship research platform, IngentaConnect. The release integrates a
number of site enhancements to improve user experience and offer greater
discoverability of its content.
Enhanced and evolved, IngentaConnect users will benefit from improved
content discoverability through the Summon(tm) service, driving user
traffic to IngentaConnect via a trusted partner for access to reliable
and credible content with increased efficiency. The release also marks
the introduction of WorldPay e-commerce, enabling wider methods of
payment, including PayPal, and affords users complete peace of mind when
purchasing articles online.
IngentaConnect now has improved and expanded social bookmarking, to
allow its users to bookmark content and recommend and share articles
with peers even more easily. And with 14 of the largest and most popular
social bookmarking sites supported, IngentaConnect is now able to offer
even greater social networking flexibility to its 4.5 million unique
visitors every month.
"Our work with Summon(tm) and with WorldPay, as well as on the site's
expanded social bookmarking, are just a few of a number of improvements
we have made in this latest release." says Rose Robinson, IngentaConnect
Product Manager. "With forthcoming Shibboleth and COUNTER 3 compliance
due to take effect imminently as well, we are confident that these
small, but collectively significant developments and modifications, will
assure our users of our commitment to providing the community with a
service that's second to none."
Earlier this year, Publishing Technology announced the integration of
Rightsconnect licensing functionality with the scholarly hosting
platform, working in conjunction with the Copyright Clearance Center
(CCC), the world's largest provider of copyright licensing solutions.
Publishers with Rightsconnect licensing on their content can offer their
users instant permission to license and reuse their content right where
they view it, all in a matter of minutes. Rightsconnect will be
implemented on content from a broad number of publishers by the end of
the year. Rightslink, a further enhanced and advanced version of the
software, is also now available.
Publishing Technology is also pleased to announce five new clients to
select its online publishing package. Content from Firenze University
Press, Warburg Institute, Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum
Berlin-Dahlem, the American Association for Respiratory Care and City
University of New York all now feature on IngentaConnect.
