Academic publishing is now facing new kinds of challenges leading to shrinking revenues, like crowd knowledge sourcing which brought about free access to information and technologies have started putting up credible challenges in terms of rendering the services usually provided by publishers.

While publishers experiment with different business models, one way to mitigate shrinking revenues is by adding value to their products. Readers of today consume content on multiple platforms and formats, publishers can push their frontiers and offer a wide assortment of content (beyond PDF and XMLs) to this audience in the form of ebooks, videos and even digital courses. Readers can also be provided with a different experience, eg: by creating a simulation video explaining a biological process.

The technical aspect of this business model concerns with delivery platform for varied forms of content. Impelsys with its years of continuous innovation in publishing and education technology has developed a platform which comprehensively looks into every aspect of scientific publishing. iPublishCentral Scholar is Impelsys’ flagship content delivery platform which provides branded web and mobile apps for delivery of journals, ebooks, videos, courses and other file formats, a unified platform for distribution of content in various formats, helping publishers generate more revenue by adding value to their products.
