World Bank, OUP, and American Society for Investigative Pathology Choose Ingenta

Jan 28, 2003

Ingenta will create the World Bank's eLibrary, an electronic collection of World Bank publications in the area of international social and economic development. The eLibrary site is scheduled to launch in the Spring of this year, and will include more than 1,000 World Bank titles published in the past years and all forthcoming titles in electronic format. All eLibrary titles will be accessible via the World Bank site and via through an institutional subscription to the collection or on a pay-per-view basis. Features of the elibrary site, built by Ingenta will include: unified, searchable, and indexed collection of World Bank publications; sub-collections of World Bank publications searchable by geographic or subject themes; full-text content available in PDF format; and unlimited access to authorized users under an institutional subscription, controlled by IP address filtering.

Oxford University Press has also appointed Ingenta to build a scholarly books Web site on its behalf. The Web site is designed to offer scholarship in the humanities and social sciences and will be online and cross-searchable in the fall of 2003. The site will feature: 750 current and selected backlist titles available in full text at launch, equivalent to 250,000 printed pages; coverage of four key disciplines (Economics and Finance, Political Science, Philosophy, and Religion and Theology) regular updates with new and recently published books; navigable and searchable abstracts that will be part of a global body of online academic resources, accessible from a variety of research sites; and book and chapter abstracts written by original author wherever possible. Access to all of the abstracts and keywords in Oxford Scholarship Online will be available alongside journal abstracts through a wide variety of services, including, offering new research opportunities for scholars and students in the humanities and social sciences.

Ingenta has also announced that it has signed two journals from the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP): the American Journal of Pathology, a journal in the field of pathology; and the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics. ASIP will be among the first publishers to take advantage of Ingenta's newest service capability, which is designed to enable publishers who maintain full text SGML or XML editions of their publications to re-purpose their publications on Ingenta's aggregation service.
