Factiva Launches Content Community for Publishers

Factiva has announced the launch of Content Community (, a new portal dedicated to the providers of Factiva's collection of news and business information. Members of the Content Community portal include representatives from more than 8,000 sources spanning approximately 75 countries around the world. Through the portal, publishers can access regular news and industry updates about new trends and technology, as well as information on products and services that can facilitate electronic delivery of content to various markets. In addition, the portal provides case studies of publishers that have forged content relationships with Factiva, and tools for information providers to update source information and submit content-amendment requests.

"The Content Community portal furthers Factiva's strategy to build communities that facilitate better and more efficient communication and relationships with our partners and major audiences," said Clare Hart, Factiva's president and CEO. "With a myriad of different delivery options for publishers, the Content Community portal meets the needs of Factiva's content providers, giving them access to the information and tools they need to maximize the value of their content-distribution and licensing arrangements."

"It is refreshing to see companies like Factiva place such an emphasis on publisher relationships by establishing a community that caters to the needs of the industry," said Andrea D. Broadbent, director of corporate licensing at The McGraw-Hill Companies. "The Content Community portal gives The McGraw-Hill Companies several innovative tools that allow us to monitor our content relationship with Factiva quickly and easily."

A secure, password-protected area of the Content Community portal will be added later this year that will allow information providers to track content quality and delivery statistics for more than 60,000 articles flowing into Factiva's content collection each day, access their royalty and usage information, and allow members to talk to one another about their experiences.
