Publisher Platforms and NISO’s PIE-J


Certain platform designs can inadvertently affect the quality of access to e-journals adversely. Sally Glaser, Chair of the Standing Committee on Presentation and Identification of E-Journals (PIE-J) for the National Information Standards Organization (NISO), presented how the NISO recommended practice provides guidelines on how best to avoid problems. Julie Zhu shared how Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers has been striving to incorporate the PIE-J recommendations and some of the successes or hindrances they have encountered. Heather Otrando of Cambridge University Press described how upgrades to the Cambridge Core platform created an opportunity to more fully align their presentation of e-journal content with PIE-J recommendations.
