New Pinnacle Premium™ Online Publishing Solution Allows Scholarly Publishers More Design Freedom

LAWRENCE, Kan. – February 10, 2015 – Allen Press has announced the launch of Pinnacle Premium™, a new addition to the Pinnacle™ online publishing platform that combines all of the functionality and rich features of Pinnacle with more flexibility in site design and additional features.

Pinnacle is a templated content hosting solution built on the robust Atypon Literatum software. In addition to hosting services, Pinnacle also includes XML-tagging, content loading, site editing, and end-user customer support. Using Pinnacle, publishers can deliver a variety of content types including journal articles, books, abstracts, and multimedia files on their own independently branded, mobile-optimized website.

Pinnacle Premium™ includes several enhancements that allow for more configurability. Customizable banner and footer frames displayed throughout the site, a large customizable area of HTML on the home page, and additional advertising space across the site allow publishers to better highlight their brand and communicate the objectives of their organizations.

In the new expandable table of contents, users can expand article titles to view abstracts without leaving the page. Useful article tools such as saving to favorites list, sharing, and tracking and exporting citations are available directly from the table of contents page. A tabbed article view in the new user interface will display metadata at the top and allow the user to view different sections of the article such as abstract, figures, references, media, supplemental material, and the full text. Full text articles and chapters are available in both HTML and PDF formats.

An optional discussions feature will allow registered users to leave comments on articles in order to facilitate dialogue and foster communication. Publishers can choose to approve and/or moderate comments before they become publicly available.

“Pinnacle has a proven track record for pairing robust online publishing technology with outstanding customer service,” Product Marketing Manager Joanna Gillette said. “Pinnacle Premium is a great way for us to build on this tradition by serving publishers who want more control over the look and feel of their website and advanced features for their users, but may not have the staff time or expertise to manage a custom online publishing solution.”
