The files produced are optimized for online distribution (SEO and download time) and are available in PDF, XML, or XHTML formats.
Two production processing levels are offered by Érudit: minimal and complete.
Minimal XML processing
Minimal XML processing identifies and tags article content elements such as titles, subtitles, authors, affiliations and contact information of authors, abstracts, bibliographies, and biographical notes.
Complete XML processing.
Full XML processing identifies finer semantic elements within the text body, such as section headings, paragraphs, quotations, footnotes, transcriptions, lists, figures, tables, images, multimedia, and more.
Érudit also provides an archive digitization service.
The production of current issues published on Érudit is billed annually to journals. These fees are based on a cost table taking into account:
⋅ processing type (minimal or full XML)
⋅ method of access (open or subscription access)
⋅ number of articles published annually
⋅ complexity of articles processed (number of tables and figures, special characters, etc.)
Large archival collections are batch digitized using a method that optimizes production without increasing the related financial impact. Digitization is billed on a per project basis.
– Current issues
Issues are produced within 4 to 6 weeks of file reception to ensure simultaneous publishing of print and digital versions.
– Archival digitization
Production time for back issues depends on the number of ongoing projects and the nature of the archives being processed.
Dissemination and referencing
Dissemination and referencing go hand in hand with efficient organization of data and are essential steps in enhancing the digital publications offered on Érudit. Through careful content organization and the use of international quality standards, Érudit has signed agreements with major players in the world of documentation (Primo Central, WorldCat, Summons, Scopus, WOS, Google Scholar, Francis, BASE, OAISter, JournalTOCS, DOAJ, Repère, Persée, etc.).
With more than 26.5 million page views in 2013, 70% from abroad, Érudit is proud to contribute to the international dissemination of French-language heritage and culture.
Érudit works continuously to develop commercial revenue for publishers by negotiating new agreements with library consortia and proposing new marketing solutions. In all, more the 1,000 institutions in 35 countries have title or package subscriptions with Érudit.
Hosting and preservation
Érudit is committed to ensuring the long-term preservation of XML, XHTML, and PDF files and their metadata. To this end, a permanent identification service (through unique URLs) is provided for all documents of the collection.
Érudit signed an agreement with Portico in 2013 to safeguard files in the event of a major incident.
With a team of professionals from the publishing and documentation communities and over 15 years in the field, Érudit provides personalized support to journal publishers for all activities related to scholarly publishing and dissemination.
Journals published on the Érudit platform have access to the Open Journal System (OJS), an online tool for submitting and editing articles.
In collaboration with the Université de Montréal’s Centre d’expertise numérique pour la recherché (CEN-R), Érudit assists journals in installing, setting up, and using this tool.
