codemantra’s collectionPoint (cP) is a cloud-based central repository and delivery platform for all manner of content (PDF, JATS, BITS, HTML, XHTML, ePub, JPG, JSON, MPEG et al) and associated metadata. Whether a book/ a chapter, a journal/an article, a working paper, a proceedings summary, or a preprint, collectionPoint manages all digital formats and all metadata.

Automate Delivery of Global Research with collectionPoint™ Platform

★ Managing Metadata the Smart Way

Metadata in Excel/CSV spreadsheets or Onix can be easily uploaded to cP through a common browser. It can also be fed to the platform automatically with APIs connected to any number of ERP or BI systems. The platform then stores and enables the metadata requirements for any third party platform or research sight, ensuring that data associated with each piece of content is present and properly configured.

★ Auto-Package and Deliver Content to any Online Destination

Users can manually select assets from within cP and generate a distribution (Figure 1). cP will isolate assets and prompt the user to select a distribution destination from the drop down menu (Figure 2). There is no zip folder assembly required. Once the destination has been chosen, the user clicks on “proceed with distribution” and the files will be auto-packaged with the appropriate metadata and pushed to the target FTP site or web hosting portal ( the likes of Atypon, Silverchair, Sitecore, SheridanPubFactory or HighWire Press). eMail notifications are then sent to the user with a status result (success/failed) for the distribution.
