Royal Society (London) moves to Atypon’s Literatum platform

At the end of 2018, the Royal Society’s digital publishing platform migrated from HighWire to the Literatum platform from Atypon. The move enabled the Royal Society to host the same high quality content but do so in a way that improves the online experience for all users, with optimized viewing capabilities and other new features.
According to the migration FAQ, users will notice improved search functionality and the migration ensures all journal pages can display content in a mobile-friendly format. A robust editorial collection tool allows users to create automated or curated topic collections.
Other key features include:

  • Comprehensive reader collaboration tools.
  • Enhanced, drag and drop report creation.

The Royal Society (London) has implemented permanent redirects to the new platform; no proxy server configuration changes were necessary.

  • Currently, the Royal Society platform does not work with the UCB EZProxy instance. UCB is continuing to investigate this issue.
  • Searches that had been saved on Highwire were not carried over to the Literatum platform. New searches can be created and saved. New content alerts, notifying users when relevant content is published, can also be created.
