What is CloudPublish?
CloudPublish is an advanced cloud-based service which allows publishers and universities to market, manage, sell and securely deliver content in electronic format to customers.
CloudPublish technology can be used to create branded feature rich websites for the digital delivery and sales of eBooks, eChapters, and eJournals or to power existing websites.
The CloudPublish package provides a comprehensive back-end system and array of tools which allow you to build bespoke online services which fully satisfy your clients’ requirements and give you complete control over sales activity.
CloudPublish offers the flexibility to implement virtually any business model you care to adopt, from a concurrent user model to patron driven acquisition.
Who is CloudPublish for?
CloudPublish ends the dependency on aggregators to sell eBooks to customers by delivering the resources needed for publishers to deliver eBooks, eChapters, and eJournals themselves directly to customers online.
CloudPublish technology can also provide publishers with existing websites the tools required to answer the sophisticated demands of public and academic libraries as well as to deliver digital content to individuals.
Universities and other academic institutions
Using the CloudPublish platform, high resolution eBooks, eChapters, and eJournals can be created, managed, and securely delivered to students and other academic institutions – without the cost and complication associated with using third parties.
The flexibility of CloudPublish allows a wide range of digital content to be created, including eChapters, and delivered using our state-of-the-art online eReader, or securely downloaded in PDF format.
How does CloudPublish work?
CloudPublish provides a dedicated back-end facility and set of online tools (including a comprehensive API, connectors in common programming languages, example code and templates) which allow you to create or integrate branded digital publishing websites for the sales and delivery of eBooks, eChapters, and eJournals.
Once configured, the CloudPublish package also offers secure title management, user authentication (including Shibboleth and OpenAthens), subject code conversion, bibliographic referencing and subscription management. CloudPublish is pre-integrated with industry standard metadata solutions, including ONIX, OAI-PMH, OpenURL, DOI, and more.
