IMF renews eLibrary platform hosting partnership with PubFactory through 2019.
Hosted on PubFactory since 2010, the IMF has built a feature rich, internationalized eLibrary platform that it will continue to develop by adding an enhanced Figure Viewer and a responsive site design.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF), a Washington-based organization comprised of 189 member countries, has an active publishing program designed to distribute its economic research, forecasts, and analysis about the global economy around the world. Its eLibrary contains content dating back to 1946 and is an essential research tool used to track global economic trends and policy.
Jeremy Clift, Publisher at the IMF, says “The IMF faces the mission critical challenge of serving a global community that relies on our publications and research to guide them in their policy formulation and decision making. In addressing this, the IMF has recommitted to the PubFactory platform based on a track record of collaborative service over the past 6 years and the flexibility PubFactory provides in allowing us to build custom features and tools on top of the standardized platform application, with the goal of making our content discoverable, accessible, and portable for our users.”
Jose Fossi, Vice President of Client Services for PubFactory emphasizes “The IMF is a long-term and valued partner. The IMF has impressively leveraged PubFactory to continuously tailor the UI and UX to their content, including the internationalization of their site to serve Latin American regions and launching country and subject-specific micro-sites via PubFactory’s SiteGen module. We are excited to support the IMF in the execution of the next phase of its online publishing platform strategy.”
PubFactory’s technology platform and publishing services have been adopted by innovative publishers like OUP, DeGruyter, Brill, and Bloomsbury Publishing. Today, the PubFactory platform is host to 1,200+ journals and 400,000+ books along with other content types making it the only truly content agnostic platform and service provider in the scholarly publishing industry.
