For years, the challenge for smaller publishers has been to deliver content electronically with the same features and capabilities of larger publishers at a price that smaller publishers can afford. Metapress™ has developed the Essential™ platform to provide a cost-effective online environment for these publishers. The Essential™ platform enables them to have all the features and functionality necessary for their content to be discovered and used by researchers from around the world. It also provides librarians with institutional authentication options as well as COUNTER usage reports that they have become accustomed to on the Metapress™ platform. You can find out more about the Essential™ platform and other Metapress™ services by clicking here.
