Apex takes on medical digitisation project

The publishing services division of Apex CoVantage has been selected to create a multi-million page digital archive of medical journals for a major association.

This project includes the creation of article-level, searchable PDF files and parsed citations to enable linking to the referenced article. The linking functionality will allow for hyperlinking to any digital resource referenced, wherever that resource may reside, even if it is located outside of the association's own digital archive, claims Apex.

‘Until now, publishers have struggled to find a way to make citation linking pay off economically. This is the first digital archive of medical journal literature to include this functionality and it seems reasonable to expect that other medical publishers will soon follow suit,’ said Apex Publishing president Margaret Boryczka.
