Introducing Ingenta Open – the one stop shop for open access content

Byron Russell, Head of Ingenta Connect, Ingenta

Ingenta Open ( is an entirely new platform, built on Ingenta’s very own proprietary CMS architecture. It has been conceived specifically and exclusively for Open Access content.  Here are some of the questions publishers have been asking about this exciting new platform. 


Make Your Next Step in Your Publishing Journey via Ingenta CMS

For any publisher wanting a dedicated, highly configurable branded site suitable for all of their content, Ingenta offers Ingenta CMS: a custom hosting solution that can support and deliver everything you publish. Ingenta CMS integrates seamlessly with a range of tools.


GDPR Update

We are making progress on our GDPR status. It’s a complex and time-consuming job – and of course delays other day-to-day tasks and new development – but it needs doing. 


Need Help with Peer Review?

By Stephanie Sacharov, The Editorial Hub

The Editorial Hub was set up in 2014 by Stephanie Sacharov and Naomi Conneely – who have more than twenty-five years of editorial experience between them – to offer peer review co-ordination and administration services to publishers and societies of peer-reviewed journals and books. The Editorial Hub quickly grew to become a globally recognised brand due to both their editorial expertise and quality of service, and they now work with some of the leading publishing houses worldwide with clients based across Europe, America, and Australasia. 

The Editorial Hub offers services on a range of journal management systems such as Editorial Manager, ScholarOne Manuscripts, Open Journal Systems, and eJournalPress. Although they specialise in journal peer review administration, they also offer services for books, conference proceedings, and books of abstracts.


The CLOCKSS Archive: Long-Term Preservation for Scholarly Content

By Craig Van Dyck, Executive Director, CLOCKSS

Just before the December holidays, the CLOCKSS Archive “triggered” 21 journals for open access. These were 21 of the journals that SAGE Publishing had acquired from Libertas Academica; SAGE had decided to cease publishing them, and to cease providing access. That’s when CLOCKSS stepped in, to preserve users’ access. CLOCKSS is a “dark archive” of scholarly content. With 30 million journal articles and 65,000 books, and growing rapidly, CLOCKSS is a leading preservation service for libraries and publishers who want to be sure that scholarly content will continue to be available to end-users for the long-term, no matter what might happen with the accessibility of the content.

  • A new “Dimension” in metrics from Digital Science

The research landscape has evolved but discovery channels and ways impact is measured and assessed have remained static. Digital Science had a vision for a modern research system where data is democratized and the way we measure research outputs broadened.


  • Trend MD latest – a 5.8% uplift in Visitors

In May 2017, TrendMD and Ingenta partnered to offer publishers on the Ingenta platform a 1 month free trial of the Professional Plan. Those publishers which continued with a paid plan have seen a 5.8% lift in their traffic.
