Ingram Content Group has launched a programme to provide print on demand for journals.
'Using an on-demand business model for journals will help publishers become more efficient in the distribution and production of journal content,' explained Phil Ollila, chief content officer at Ingram.
Ingram's solution is said to provide publishers with tools to manage their print journals, from file set-up to print on demand to delivery. Publishers can upload and manage content and subscription lists, designate fulfillment requirements, place print orders for direct delivery to their subscribers, as well as order one-off issues for claims fulfillment.
Ingram will begin printing on-demand journals in March for publishers worldwide from its Tennessee location and says that it has plans to expand journal manufacturing to its other locations soon.
