The choice is yours.
PubFactory’s flexible technology infrastructure includes a number of key components that can be leveraged to drive the functioning of your platform, or can be replaced with external technologies that you have in place.
Account Management System (AMS)
Access control and business model building.
The AMS provides maximum adaptability, allowing publishers to set up many different types of business models—from Open Access to Subscription to Metered Access Models and more. You can experiment with different access models to fit the changing needs of your organization and your user communities. PubFactory’s AMS allows you to shift from one access model to another or to create hybrid publications that contain multiple models.
Full control over all aspects of your site.
The Management Portal provides intuitive interfaces for controlling all aspects of your site. From content loading to adding and updating pages on the site to modifying how the site works, everything is at your fingertips. And if you don’t have the resources to do it yourself, rest assured that our customer services folks are ready and waiting to do it for you.
Flexible content module to enrich your user experience.
Use PubGen to add freeform, searchable content like news, blogs, reports, and grey literature. Tag and format accompanying features using the same PubFactory management system and layout engine as published journal articles and book chapters for unified delivery.
PayPal-powered sales transaction engine.
PubFactory’s eCommerce module allows users to buy articles, chapters, and other content chunks on your PubFactory hosted website. Each transaction is secure, easy, and PCI compliant.

Age of Open Access (OA)
As Open Access increases, publishers must make the impact of their publications clear to both researchers and funders. PubFactory’s reporting and analytics tools equip publishers with the data to convey the value of their publications to potential authors as they decide where to submit their research.
Your content does not live in a vacuum.
A critical aspect of the scholarly communication landscape is making sure that your content and metadata are disseminated to all the places they need to go, from search engines to A&I databases to archiving solutions. We know the players and we know the formats they require.
