Transforming Data to Power Scholarly Publishing
Scholarly publishing is more reliant on data and systems than ever before. Successful publishers and intermediaries will be able to leverage their information assets, gaining deep insight into their business, efficiencies across workflows, and a competitive advantage in the market. By helping to transform raw data into an asset, Ringgold can empower scholarly publishers – and the partners that serve them – to face the new interconnected and data-driven environment.
