Hanover, PA—Sheridan PubFactory is excited to announce a new partnership with industry-leading analytics and reporting specialist Scholarly iQ (SiQ). This addition to its expanding network of partner associations enables the launch of a dedicated Reporting and Business Intelligence Platform for PubFactory, offering the opportunity for PubFactory publishers to gain important insights into how and where their content is used.
Established in 2002, SiQ offers services for scholarly publishers in four categories: COUNTER Compliance, Business Intelligence and Insight, Data Management, and Strategic Consulting Services. SiQ also provides COUNTER and SUSHI reporting access to librarians.
SiQ has maintained COUNTER compliance since 2003―essentially since the inception of COUNTER standards―and is an authorized compliant vendor to the latest COUNTER R5 and Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative (SUSHI) standards through NISO.
Stuart Maxwell, Scholarly iQ COO commented: “We are very pleased to be partnering with the Sheridan PubFactory team on a dedicated PubFactory Reporting and BI platform through SiQ. Their significant and growing book of business is a perfect fit for the services we offer to the scholarly publishing community, and we look forward to not only ensuring their compliance requirements, but delivering a deeper usage data experience on which to guide better business decisions.”
Sheridan’s José Fossi, VP of Client Services for PubFactory added: “Bringing the expertise, experience, and services of Scholarly iQ to our clients means they will be able to mine not only vital extended information about their business, but they can be assured of continuing COUNTER compliance. Scholarly iQ services give publishers the confidence that they can address their reporting needs with credible, definitive answers.”
