Literatum

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

Atypon’s universal content type technology, known as Digital Objects, assigns a DOI (digital object identifier) to any type of content or media, including blogs, news articles, videos, images, and interactive visualisations. 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.
