``We wanted a robust platform and a company that was forward-thinking – that was important to us. We wanted to ensure that they were staying on top of what was coming in the publishing space, and that they were bring that to the platform for us instead of us having to always be developing it ourselves.``
``We wanted a lot of flexibility - that was a big priority. Another priority was being able to partner with an organization that could serve as a network and a hub of other independent scholarly publishers.``
``We were looking for a pricing model that did not financially penalize us for growth. We wanted price predictability.``
``We wanted to partner with someone who seemed to be thinking about technology in a smart, flexible, forward-looking way.``
``We wanted a platform that would allow us to broaden the array of content that we could host on a platform.``
``We wanted flexibility to be able to launch a project that didn’t look like an issue-based journal.``
``We were looking for something that was a good price, reliable, and we wanted them to be pleasant to work with, and to fit with our culture.``

``We wanted to be a part of a community.``
