Sheridan Connect™ for Journals

There’s something special about holding a physical book in your hand. No matter how convenient reading on a device may be, it can never fully replace the experience of reading a hard copy.

The book industry realized this ten years ago, when there were concerns that eBooks would replace physical books. The academic journal publishing community is experiencing that trajectory, as online journals are increasingly the published platform.

With Sheridan Connect™, you can have the best of both worlds.

Many journals have cancelled their print runs altogether, moving their content online only. But what about the readers who still want to hold the journal? Or the library that stocks the latest print editions for the community to peruse?

There is still so much intrinsic pleasure in reading a printed journal — feeling the weight of it, the tooth of the paper, and seeing the words on a page. Fortunately, getting a physical copy has never been easier.

Sheridan Connect™ is a publisher-branded, PCI-compliant eCommerce platform offering academic journal print-on-demand options. Instead of printing thousands of copies, Sheridan Connect™ prints only those which customers specifically purchase. That means if a subscriber wants one copy — or one thousand — Sheridan will print to order. This is cost-efficient and promotes zero waste.

But what if you don’t have the staff or resources to manage such small orders? The good news is, Sheridan Connect™ is entirely turnkey. Dedicated Sheridan staff take care of discoverability, order fulfillment, shipping & handling — the entire backend process — saving your team time and money.

The printing process is fully customizable, so you can be involved as much or as little as you’d like.

At Sheridan, we’re making it easy for your audience to purchase what they want, when they want it. Consider Sheridan Connect™ print-on-demand publishing at its finest.
