DigiCorePro is a next generation publishing workflow solution based on the principles of single source publishing, a methodology that puts scholarly content at the center of the publishing process, reducing inefficiencies and increasing the speed of delivery.
Our Vision for DigiCorePro
Faster time-to-market, reduced costs and ease-of-publishing for authors, editors, reviewers and publishers with a submission and tracking system that provides editorial services in an automated and customizable way from article concept to publication.
Benefits of Single Source Publishing
Single source publishing, and the underpinning mechanisms of content extraction and XML conversion, provide efficiencies to the publishing process such as:
Simplifies manuscript submission for researchers
Automates formatting and quality checking for staff
Provides interactive peer review for editors and reviewers
Reduces errors due to file and metadata mismatches
Streamlines metadata collection and export
Processes content faster and more efficiently
Encourages collaboration between all constituents
Reduces time from submission to publication

The Evolving Landscape
There are innovations that publishers want to incorporate into their workflow, such as collaborative authoring, new methods of peer review, AI and ML enabled tools, and an increased use of video and other media. DigiCorePro allows editorial staff to add in new processes without interrupting existing processes. Users can change the order of tasks or perform tasks in parallel without requiring code changes. A modern system must be able to reach upstream and work with electronic lab notebooks and preprint servers, or downstream and seamlessly interact with journal and book hosting systems, with capabilities to pull content back into the workflow for reuse and revision.
