When scholarly publishing platforms first came into being, they offered scholarly publishers an online presence, and not much more than that. But times have changed, customers have evolved, and buying criteria are evolving. Now, Scholarly publishing platforms must expand their focus beyond the classic content of the print journal to include multi-media, data, metadata and semantics, analytics, applications, dynamically generated collections, and more. User experience matters. Data matters. Agility matters. Times have changed and so have they. This session focuses on what scholarly publishers need in a hosted publishing platform and how these platforms are meeting those needs. Key topics include knowing the individual user, building a compelling user experience, making content portable, and content monetization.
