Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) September 27, 2006 -- Reprints Desk announced today that it has reached an agreement with the American Society for Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP), the publishers of Pain Physician, to offer streamlined, customer-focused Reprint and ePrint services.
“Reprints and ePrints are important methods of scholarly communication and information dissemination and we are pleased to provide a full service web-based reprint service bureau to an organization of the stature and value of ASIPP” said Jan Peterson, Head of Publisher Relations at Reprints Desk. “ASIPP can concentrate on editorial and content matters while Reprints Desk focuses on servicing their readers’ reprint needs.
Reprints Desk will offer paper reproduction services of ASIPP’s Open Access peer-reviewed journal Pain Physician, as well as PDF distribution options for customized ePrints, protected by DRM (digital rights management). In addition Reprints Desk will provide ASIPP with a co-branded website for placing orders, requesting quotes and tracking orders, as well as an outsourced phone, email, and web-based customer service functions.
“It’s a synergistic relationship that allows us to maximize our communication opportunities and minimize administrative duties. We’re excellent at meeting the challenges of peer demands, information accessibility, and initial content distribution” said ASIPP CEO Laxmaiah Manchikanti, M.D. “but there is demand for on-going use of valuable content, whether by the healthcare community that needs to get the word out about clinical trial results, or authors who want to promote and share their work with colleagues. Reprints Desk understands content re-purposing, from a practical perspective, as well as the needs and interests of the consumer.”
“Copyright compliance and ease of use are the drivers behind this partnership. While Open Access publications desire to make their material broadly available, there are challenges in protecting and honoring the value of the content when third parties have a keen interest in distributing in a manner of their choice. That’s where Reprints Desk steps in. We offer options for reproduction and copyright compliance in ways that meets the needs of all parties,” said Peter Derycz, President of Reprints Desk.

About The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP)
The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians is a not-for-profit organization representing approximately 4,000 interventional pain physicians across the United States. The organization has been growing rapidly since 1998 and has had a substantial impact on the practice of interventional pain management. ASIPP was started in November 1998 as the Association of Pain Management Anesthesiologists (AOPMA) to represent interventional pain physicians dedicated to improving the delivery of interventional pain management services to patients across the country in the various settings of ambulatory surgical centers, offices, and hospital outpatient departments. In addition, ASIPP also started the Interventional Pain Physician-PAC of AOPMA in December 1999 to represent the political interests of interventional pain physicians. Its name has been changed to American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians-PAC. ASIPP publishes Pain Physician, a peer-reviewed journal that addresses the science and practice of interventional pain management. As the official publication of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, Pain Physician outlines the latest studies, research and information vital to those in the growing specialty of interventional pain management. Pain Physician Journal was recently evaluated by the National Library of Medicine’s Literature Selection Technical Review Committee and based upon that review, was selected for indexing and inclusion in MEDLINE.
