Leveraging Technology to Push Frontiers of Academic Publishing

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. This highly scalable SaaS platform comes with powerful reader technology, has enhanced search and discoverability features, and supports multiple devices with responsive web design (RWD) standards.

Impelsys also provides ebook creation, courseware development and content engineering services, transforming linear content into powerful digital learning resources.

While publishers can drive revenue by adding value to their products, by partnering with publishing service providers, they can also pare down the cost of production. Impelsys, through its partners, provides comprehensive publishing services catering to all the aspects of production, delivery and marketing. We are a one-stop shop for all-inclusive academic publishing services and we want publishers to leverage our technology and expertise and focus on their core operations and keep producing authentic and valuable content.

In order to survive, everything must evolve. The EContent 100 list of companies that matter most in the digital content industry is no exception. Every year during the voting process, we see how the changing list reflects the way the larger industry is developing. In 2017, a couple of trends emerged. The first, is the importance of artificial intelligence (AI), which is probably obvious to anyone in the content business. The second is the increasing importance of digital asset management (DAM). Next year, DAM will need its own category, but this year, we did our best to honor its contributions to the industry within our existing framework.

The EContent 100 list of companies that matter most in the digital content industry is now in its 16th year. Similar to most adolescents, it's going through some changes. We added new judges and new categories. As a result, we've got many new companies on the list. Among other changes, this year we added Online Video as a standalone category. We all know that video's popularity is on the rise; and as it's becoming a bigger part of the content puzzle, it clearly needed its own category.

Reading and learning go hand-in-hand; the two sides of the coin. But when it comes to technology solutions, there are Content Management Solutions and there are Learning Management Solutions. With mobile technology driving content consumption and learning behavior, publishers and educators have exciting and challenging times ahead. Anywhere-anytime-access to content and learning material is a given. What differentiates the leaders from the rest is their ability to consistently offer engaging and easy-to-access learning content. The line between eBooks and eLearning is blurring; students want integrated content to adapt to their needs and their pace of learning. eBooks need to be smarter, offer built-in exercises, assessments and ancillaries. eLearning courses need to include all reading material and ancillaries. Looking at these evolving learning needs, it is evident that the future belongs to smart content creators who deliver books, ancillaries, assessments and all interactive learning modules packaged cohesively as a single integrated learning resource that adapts to each individual learner. The solutions and platforms should be adaptive enough to deliver this smart content. Impelsys has invested heavily over the years to build advanced content delivery solutions to meet these very needs of students and publishers.

BEA is great for a lot of things-finding out what new books are coming soon, reconnecting with old colleagues and friends, and maybe even snagging a bound galley or two. But what's also very cool is getting to see and find out more about the people and companies who work in different aspects of publishing, particularly the emerging technology fields. For a content creation person such as myself, it's fascinating to learn more about content delivery and the mechanics that go into it.
