Predicting print costs has evolved into an increasingly complex task for STM journals publishers that stretches far beyond the old metrics of press, paper and ink. As many readers move to eSubscriptions, publishers struggle to cost-effectively support the loyal subscribers that continue to request printed editions. While publishers seek a more flexible production system that can quickly and affordably produce small run sizes, traditional print business models fail to evolve.
An On-Demand Approach
Discover JournalsXpress, a progressive approach to print subscription management that empowers publishers to focus less on platforms and more on delivering subscriber value. JournalsXpress couples the advantages of high-speed print on-demand and automated replenishment programs in order to retain the profitability of printed journal subscriptions.
Eliminate the need to carry excess inventory or pay storage fees by printing subscriber requests for first-run, back-order, stock-out and author reprints just-in-time for distribution.
