July 13, 2011
– Cenveo Publisher Services, a global full-service publishing partner that combines the technology, experience and end-to-end support of Cadmus Communications, KGL and Glyph, providing a full range of content and print services for publishers, announces the addition of enhanced Author Services to their STM (Scientific-Technical-Medical) suite of production tools.
The easy-to-use Author Services tool improves the editorial workflow and increases publishing revenue by integrating the collection of author fees, open access fees, author e-prints and reprint charges into the production workflow.
Cenveo's Author Services is a web-based platform available to current and future composition customers accessible via an email link that delivers the author to the customized publisher-branded website. The author uses a full feature, user-friendly storefront to complete all transactions. The link is e-mailed as part of the author proofing cycle, and the Author Services tool can be accessed at any point in the editorial process.
Customers using this service have reported a significant increase in the timely collection of author fees eliminating delays in the publishing process. They have also noted an increase in revenue and fees are captured earlier in the process.
According to Atul Goel, SVP, Global Operations & Technology, "As a major supplier of services to the STM community, Cenveo Publisher Services continues to invest our resources in developing solutions that enhance our customers' ability to achieve their publishing objectives." He added, "In conjunction with our customers' rapidly changing needs, we have accelerated the launch of many new tools that have been developed internally."
