The New Publishing Platform TRIADA Launched by Pensoft
On 1 November 2010, Pensoft Publishers launched their brand new, innovative, integrated platform for publishing, disseminating and marketing of printed books, e-books and open access journals. TRIADA provides a linked environment for content, authors, reviewers, editors and customers through four independent classifications (taxonomic, subject, geographical, and geological time scale) as well through tagging and semantic mark-up. TRIADA uses a one-time registration process which allows users to submit, review or edit manuscripts, to subscribe for E-mail and RSS alerts, and to purchase Pensoft’s products.
A strong point of TRIADA is the innovative platform for open access journal publishing based on its own online editorial management system and XML-based editorial workflow. A specially designed, Pensoft Markup Tool (PMT) provides semantic mark-up of journal content and export to various formats, e.g., XML files for archiving in PubMedCentral and to facilitate future data mining, a semantically-enhanced HTML version for interactive reading, and various XML exchange formats for upload on external aggregators.
The Pensoft Taxon Profile tool creates a real-time, dynamic web page for any taxonomic name mentioned in a journal article. The tool is also open for free external use at www.ptp.pensoft.eu. The platform is linked to social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, Mendeley, CiteuLike and others.
The accounts of the users of the journals ZooKeys, BioRisk and of the previous Pensoft website have been automatically transferred to the new platform. Users may use their email addresses as username and ask for a new password to enter their registration profiles.
