The publisher's online platform: hosting the present and the future

Author:

David Burgoyne

Abstract

Over the past two decades the academic publisher has had to respond to the digital revolution, that of the ever increasing growth of the Internet in terms of societal importance and technical complexity. Journal publishers began their move into this digital realm by making their content, the journal article, available electronically in parallel with the printed publication and over the years, these publishers have developed or acquired their own online platforms on which to host the electronic versions of their content.These online platforms, their similarities and capabilities, are considered here in order to establish the current ‘technological baseline’ and to identify features and functionalities that may comprise a future technological baseline.
