Certain platform designs can inadvertently negatively affect the discoverability and access of e-journals. NISO's PIE-J (Presentation and Identification of E-Journals) offers guidelines on how best to avoid this. In this session, two publishers discuss how they used the PIE-J guidelines in their platform design to ensure discoverability and access of e-journal content over time.

This session offers the perspective and "know-how" of actual publishers who have gone through the process of comparing the PIE-J guidelines to their platforms, making changes, and improving access and discoverability of their e-journals. Publishers can gain insight into why this is important and how it can be done, while librarians and other stakeholders will get a look into the complex back-end technological requirements and challenges of creating well-functioning, well designed platforms. The session offers an opportunity for library-to-publisher and publisher-to-publisher dialogue and possibly helpful contacts for those interested in embarking on similar platform redesign or enhancements.
