The Oxford University Press Licenses RSuite to Transform its Publishing Operations


Audubon, PA – May 25, 2010 – Oxford University Press has licensed RSuite, a content management system for publishers. Worldwide, OUP publishes more than 6,000 new titles a year and employs approximately 5,000 people across 50 countries. As a result of its diverse, international publishing program, Oxford University Press has become familiar worldwide, standing for scholarly, educational, and research excellence and authority.

Oxford University Press is implementing RSuite across an initial subset of its book content. RSuite will serve as the central repository for OUP’s XML content. RSuite offers OUP the tools and the facility to automatically ingest and store content from its authors and other content suppliers. RSuite also allows the delivery of OUP content both manually and automatically to multiple targets in various formats. Examples of content delivery range from XML documents that are converted to Word and sent via email for editorial updates to batch delivery of XML and media files based on user selection and other criteria for web site updates.

Having a central repository offers OUP the opportunity to do exciting product development by allowing editors hands-on tools where they can create content packages for new products or simply to organize content for whatever purposes are useful to them in their work. They will also be able to streamline content delivery to third-parties automatically.

“RSuite will offer OUP editorial staff new terrain for collaboration among publication divisions,” stated Lisa Bos, co-founder and CTO at Really Strategies, Inc. “As content re-use becomes a natural part of an editor’s day-to-day activities, RSuite’s user interface supports easy navigation from documents, search results, and the browse tree, offering editors direct paths to search and interact with OUP content and metadata.”

“RSuite will provide our editors the tools they need to rapidly edit, organise, and enhance their content,” stated Mike Monaghan, head of Publishing Technology at OUP. “Our support staff will be able to tailor the system and workflow for each individual project’s needs, utilizing RSuite’s sophisticated capabilities, such as search, that are tackled via system configuration rather than programming. RSuite provides a welcome approach to system set up and architecture.”
