Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research, today announced an agreement with Boston-based publishing technology company, ReadCube, to enhance its content via indexing on ReadCube’s platform, used by more than 5.7 million researchers worldwide. ReadCube Discover will enhance the discoverability of all 160 of IGI Global’s peer-reviewed journals by leveraging its web, desktop, and mobile reading portals, search engines, and recommendation feeds. What’s more, all articles within IGI’s journal titles will be enhanced with ReadCube’s signature reading experience.
“As publishers, our goal is to make IGI Global’s wealth of content widely discoverable to readers,” said Kristen Stauffer, IGI Global’s Library Relations Coordinator. “At the same time, we want to ensure our readers are offered the best possible reading experience. We’re excited to be working with ReadCube to accomplish both of these goals.”
ReadCube Discover enables content to be fully enhanced and discoverable within ReadCube's suite of scholarly tools. Across ReadCube’s web, desktop, and mobile applications, IGI Global articles will be seamlessly enhanced to include helpful features such as hyperlinked in-line citations, annotations, clickable author names, direct access to supplemental content and figures, social sharing, and Altmetrics.
“The ability to discover and effectively learn from scholarly content is the bedrock upon which discovery is built,” said Sinisa Hrvatin, co-founder of Labtiva. “We look forward to working with IGI Global to optimize their content, realizing benefit for both IGI and our researcher community.”
