Boston, MA—The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has launched a new portal on KGL PubFactory, a division of KnowledgeWorks Global Ltd. (KGL), for its two influential peer-reviewed journals, the flagship Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA) as well as the American Journal of Veterinary Research (AJVR).
The result of a rapid, six-month migration that included the conversion of over 13,000 archive articles dating back to 2000, the new site at avmajournals.avma.org supports single-sign-on for Association members, and ecommerce through AVMA’s webshop via integration with the Aptify membership management platform. In addition to online hosting, AVMA is now using KGL content services for automated copyediting, composition, and electronic deliverables; and sister-company Sheridan for printing of the two journals.
Published twice a month, JAVMA provides reports of clinical research, feature articles and regular columns of interest, while monthly publication of AJVR contains reports of novel research, as well as news of interest to veterinary practitioners.
Janet D. Donlin, DVM, CAE, Chief Executive Officer of AVMA said: “It is exceedingly rare for a project of this size and scope to go so well and indeed actually get done early—and dare I say—within budget. That speaks volumes about all the hard work both our great teams put into this implementation. Our great profession will be the beneficiary of all these excellent efforts and that’s outstanding. We look forward to working with the great folks at PubFactory for years to come.”
José Fossi, VP of Client Services for KGL PubFactory added: “We were thrilled to work with the dedicated AVMA team to achieve the milestone of an expedited site launch. The seamless integration with the organization’s management systems combined with the one-stop content, hosting, and print solutions provided within the KGL and Sheridan group ensure that the veterinary practice will benefit from prompt and continuous access to important news and research in the field.”
KGL’s end-to-end proposition for scholarly publishers includes project management, AI-powered language analysis and copyediting, XML composition and proofing, digital and print production, and online hosting. The PubFactory platform hosts over 1,300 journals and 300,000 books, numerous databases, and reference works.
