An online publishing platform to modernize an established publication
SIAM News is the news journal of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). The publication covers cutting-edge research and the state of the art in applied mathematics and computational science, and is targeted to the non-profit’s 14,500+ members worldwide.
The publication dates back 20 years. In its early days, it was a print-only publication; as the years progressed, the publication made small steps towards online publishing, like adding PDF copies of articles to their organization’s main website. In 2013, SIAM News first moved online, supplementing their print publication with an online version.
Two years later, when SIAM wanted to merge two other blogs in with their SIAM News website to create a central place for their news-related content, their challenge was finding a way to organize and integrate the new content without losing the effect of a monthly publication. Plus, they wanted the backend publishing platform to be easy-to-use for editors.
