Recognising the need for cohesive and collaborative communication plans around published content, Future Science Group (FSG; London, UK) is delighted to announce the launch of a new arm of its business, PharmaPlatforms. Taking published content from FSG's journals, knowledge networks and content hubs, PharmaPlatforms will provide a range of solutions that enrich the information presented, engage the reader, and reach a broad scientific and medical professional audience.
"Publishing has progressed rapidly in the past 5-10 years, not only in terms of technology but the sheer volume of scientific articles that are published each year. Time-constrained healthcare practitioners are inundated with scientific literature daily leaving little, if any, time to read even the most important research in their field," explains Joanne Walker, Managing Director, PharmaPlatforms. "Our vision is to build on published content, leveraging our in-house editorial, graphical and digital expertise to present information in an engaging format that is easily digested and discoverable by the right audience."
"Having worked with medical publication professionals over a number of years," continues Joanne, "I am really excited to provide this community with new innovative options to enhance the content they produce, which will be to the benefit of all involved, including authors, readers, and ultimately the patient."
