American Society for Microbiology renews full-service production of journal content with Cenveo Publisher Services

Columbia, MD—January 16, 2019—The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) has awarded a new multi-year contract to Cenveo Publisher Services for full-service content production, article billing, and collections for its leading microbiology journals. Extending a decades-long relationship in providing content services and workflow solutions to support ASM’s journal program, Cenveo will fully migrate ASM’s journal production to the Smart Suite cloud-based publishing tool.

ASM journals are the most prominent publications in their field, delivering up-to-date and authoritative coverage of both basic and clinical microbiology. ASM has long embraced the technological innovations that Cenveo has developed to help streamline the production of high-quality content.

With the introduction of Smart Suite 2.0, ASM will have access to a cloud-based ecosystem of publishing tools combining user interface redesign and tighter integration with high-speed production engines to solve the challenges related to multi-channel publishing.

Smart Suite includes Smart Edit, a copyediting tool incorporating natural language processing (NLP) and artificial intelligence (AI); Smart Compose, a fully automated production engine for generating page proofs; and Smart Proof, a browser-based correction and XML conversion tool.

“ASM has partnered with Cenveo for many years to deliver the research our scientists need across multiple formats quickly and accurately,” remarked Melissa Junior, Journals Director at ASM. “We look forward to taking full advantage of Cenveo’s latest technology to maximize production efficiencies of our high impact journal publishing program.”
