A new kind of publishing platform

As a doctoral student in computer science, Georgios Papadopoulos experienced firsthand the gaps in publishing technology that often impeded online research. He founded Atypon in 1996 to develop software that makes scholarly research more easily and widely accessible. The culmination of his efforts was Literatum, Atypon’s online publishing and website development platform.

Technology specifically for publishers

Today Literatum is the most widely used platform in professional and scholarly publishing. During the 23 years it has been in continuous development, we’ve gained a deep understanding of how to help publishers efficiently promote and distinguish their brands while forging lasting connections with their readers.

Literatum is the centerpiece of Atypon’s solutions for streamlining publishing and research workflows—from discovery and authoring through submission and delivery—while increasing the value of content.

Technology in the service of knowledge

Gerogios’ five-person Silicon Valley technology startup is now an influential global organization with a team of more than 480 in nine offices worldwide and over 200 clients, including some of the world’s largest publishers. Atypon’s recent acquisitions include publishing technology companies Inera, RedLink, Authorea, and Manuscripts.

And our focus today remains much the same as always: building superior, publishing-specific technology that gets mission-critical content into the hands of the practitioners and researchers who need it most.
