Are your readers who you expect? Altmetric Badges for Books Altmetric

For academic journal articles Altmetric badges are a widely used and well understood measurement of impact. Historically, due to both complexities in the data and differences in the way audiences engage with the content, it has been more difficult to provide the same kind of insights into the impact of books and book chapters – until now.

How do we break down the barriers between academia and practice? Emerald Group Publishing

Academia and industry working together toward a common goal: to make the world a better place. Most of us would agree this is a worthy aspiration.

Emerald Reach Emerald Publishing

Emerald Reach is based on insights from authors, librarians, and the broader open access community. We asked: ‘When you’re looking for an open access publisher, what do you wish for?’ They told us that quality is, and always will be, at the top of their list. Beyond that, most important is achieving maximum reach and impact for research. And so, we got to work to develop an open access programme that would do just that.

How hard can it be? Westchester Publishing Services

‘How hard can it be?’ is a question either explicitly or implicitly asked by many of our publisher clients, about many things: transforming LaTeX into XML, or Word into InDesign, or PDF into EPUB3... or turning any author-provided manuscript into perfectly paginated and typeset pages, and PDF, and EPUB, and XML.
