Archiving and indexing articles is paramount to expanding the reputation and reach of scholarly journals — but it's not always easy. Learn about the latest ways Scholastica is helping journals reach their archiving and indexing goals with less manual work and fewer technical headaches.

In this post, we go behind the scenes of Scholastica's digital-first production service, which takes the legwork out of formatting articles by using advanced software to generate HTML, PDF, and full-text XML article files simultaneously.

Since making the switch to using Scholastica software for manuscript tracking, article production, and open access publishing, the Spartan Medical Research Journal has found that its peer-review process is smoother for editors and authors, its digital reading experience is more engaging, and the journal has the XML it needs to pursue new indexing opportunities.

At Scholastica, we believe that all journals should be able to have rich machine-readable metadata without technical hassles or manual work.

In this post, we overview the role of metadata in article discovery and how Scholastica is helping journals get the rich machine-readable metadata they need.

Journals using Scholastica's Production Service now have the option to set up automatic article deposits to PubMed Central. Scholastica's new PMC integration makes it possible to speed up article indexing in not only PMC but also the PubMed search engine. Read on for the full details!
