ACS automates QA and production of their journals Business Profile
The American Chemical Society (ACS) is the world's largest scientific society and one of the world's leading sources of authoritative scientific information. A nonprofit organization, chartered by Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemical enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers and related professions around the globe.
ACS's journal publishing environment was largely a manual-intensive, print-centric production environment that needed to migrate to an XMLbased, fully-digital environment.
More importantly, ACS needed to improve their time-to-market in order to maintain their competitiveness. This necessitated more automation in their publishing environment.
The ACS Journal Composition Automation initiative aimed to achieve the following goals across all of their journal publications:
