Atypon has added enhancements to Literatum, the online publishing platform for the professional and scholarly publishing industry.

Each digital object can then be tagged, indexed, packaged, targeted, promoted, bundled, and sold as easily as traditional content types like journal articles and book chapters.

Until now, the systems for keeping the IP ranges accurate and up to date have been cumbersome, time-consuming and inefficient for everyone involved.
