Project Euclid and SPIE announce publishing technology partnership
5 September 2019
Ithaca, NY; Durham, NC; Bellingham, WA - Project Euclid and SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, announced today a publishing technology partnership to launch a new Project Euclid platform late in 2020. Project Euclid, jointly managed by Cornell University Library and Duke University Press, is an online host and aggregator of over 100 scholarly journals, book series, and conference proceedings in mathematics and statistics. SPIE will develop and power Project Euclid’s new platform in an innovative technology model that brings nonprofit organizations together for the shared development of major publishing infrastructure.
Over the last twenty years, Cornell University Library has developed and operated a dedicated e-publishing platform in support of Project Euclid’s success. The project’s growth and the sector’s accelerating technical requirements now demand a new technology strategy. “At our current scale, there's a strong business case for moving to an externally supported platform where we can provide advanced publishing services more cost-effectively by developing solutions together with like-minded partners,” said David Ruddy, Project Euclid’s Director of Information Technology.
“In addition to their powerful technology, SPIE’s collaborative spirit and nonprofit ethos fit with Project Euclid’s culture and mission,” said Leslie Eager, Euclid’s Director of Publishing Services. “We are thrilled to work with SPIE to offer more competitive services to the mathematics and statistics community and support our shared goals for growth and innovation.”
SPIE Chief Technology Officer Scott Ritchey adds, “We are excited to work with Project Euclid and believe our partnership will help demonstrate the value that compatible, not-for-profit organizations can create together. The SPIE mission is better achieved with the shared insights and economies of scale created by our relationship with Project Euclid.”
Over the next year, Project Euclid will communicate closely with librarians, researchers, publishers, and discovery services to ensure a smooth platform migration.

Project Euclid's MathJax Implementation Creates 'Beautiful Math' Online
4 January 2011
Through the use of a new technology, Project Euclid has helped to make the presentation of mathematics as attractive on the Web as it is on paper.
"MathJax makes it easy to display 'beautiful math,' online," said David Ruddy, Project Euclid lead at Cornell. "It has been difficult to present math attractively and reliably on the Web. There are a number of different methods in use, and browsers all behave differently with each. Now, with MathJax, the display problem has been vastly simplified and Project Euclid users will be able to see math the way authors intended."
Both TeX and MathML-coded mathematics can be viewed on any modern browser, without new plug-ins or font installations. Currently, MathJax is turned on for a set of 20 titles in Project Euclid, and more titles are being added regularly. Eventually, MathJax will be used throughout Project Euclid.
Cornell University Library developed and deployed Project Euclid, the premier online information community for mathematics and statistics resources from independent publishers, in 2000. In 2008, Duke University Press established a collaborative partnership agreement with Cornell to jointly manage and expand the project.
"MathJax is a transformative new technology, and its implementation on Project Euclid will greatly benefit the independent and society publishers that Euclid was developed for," said Mira Waller, Project Euclid Manager at Duke University Press. "Over the past two years, the successful collaboration between Cornell University Library and Duke University Press has allowed Euclid to focus on enhancements, such as MathJax, that advance Euclid's core mission of serving the unique needs of low-cost scholarly communication in the fields of theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics."
MathJax is a joint project of the American Mathematical Society, Design Science, Inc., and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. As project sponsors, these institutions also provide major funding.
Together with the American Physical Society, Project Euclid is one of the original supporters of MathJax. The project serves as an example of one benefit of the collaborative partnership arrangement upon which Project Euclid is built, allowing independent publishers join forces and participate in an online presence with advanced functionality without sacrificing their intellectual or economic independence or commitment to low subscription prices.
