ACP content now available online to read, share, or purchase
NEW YORK, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Impelsys (www.impelsys.com), a global leader in electronic content delivery solutions, today announced that the American College of Physicians (ACP) has launched its e-book portal using iPublishCentral (www.ipublishcentral.com), an easy-to-implement, cost-effective, self-service solution that allows publishers to market, distribute and monetize traditional print content through electronic channels. ACP has made more than 40 books available online for purchase in digital format on their new e-book site, http://www.acppress-ebooks.com/.
"ACP Press chose iPublishCentral as our platform to deliver and distribute our digital content because it is a simple, easy-to-use solution suite," said Steven E. Weinberger, MD, FACP, ACP's deputy executive vice president and senior vice president for medical education and publishing. "Our readers can now easily read, download, create and manage purchased books. They can even sample content through the ViewInside feature and, using a viral marketing tool, share information about ACP books by placing a widget of the book on a blog, Web site or social networking site."
Readers benefit from iPublishCentral because they can retain the look and feel of a traditional print book, while relying on electronic features such as search, bookmarking and user personalization. The result is more convenience, choice and control.
"By going online through iPublishCentral, ACP Press has taken an important step towards reaching out to their community online and offering them the flexibility and benefit of accessing ACP Press content from anywhere," said Sameer Shariff, CEO of Impelsys.
Best sellers like Drug Prescribing in Renal Failure, How to Report Statistics in Medicine, Medical Care of the Pregnant Patient, The Quotable Osler, and more are available for digital download. ACP's complete catalog will be available starting this fall.
