Atypon Acquires Authorea and Manuscripts Platforms
Atypon has acquired two authoring platforms, Authorea and Manuscripts, adding free HTML-first authoring and collaboration tools for researchers to its portfolio. The tools enable researchers to write, cite, collaborate, host data, and publish. The coming months will see Atypon combine the two platforms into a new, re-engineered, open-source authoring tool. The new authoring product will, Atypon said, help researchers automatically follow publishers’ formatting guidelines, and offer publishers a modern web-first format and tools to integrate into JATS/XML and PDF–based publishing pipelines. The new product will be available for integration by all publishers, platforms, and other researcher tools.
