Read the Kalmbach Model Railroader case study

The team at Kalmbach Publishing believed in the preservation and accessibility of their extensive Model Railroader back log. After 7 years, relying on a static DVD box set for their archive was becoming unmanageable and costly and they chose Realview to help bring their magazine archive to life online.

Flexible paywall options

Realview offers simple flexible  integrations that plays well with any subscription management system, supporting single logins, group logins, enterprise subscriptions, library and university solutions, member subscriptions and online registrations. 

The digital magazine archive solution is built on the brand new Partica platform and is delivered using HTTPS so privacy is not a concern. If you want to control access yourself,  access to the archive is controlled using JSON Web Tokens (JWT). Gone are the days of complex integrations through APIs, storing multiple versions of user information – implementation through your own gateway can be achieved in record time with little complexity. In most cases just a few lines of code can integrate your gating system with the Partica Publishing JWT access.

Integrated metadata and search

Metadata can greatly enhance the reader experience and the effectiveness of the built in search functionality of your archive. Metadata is extra information about each issue, such as the article headline, keywords, even what type of content is on each page. This metadata can be imported when your archive is created, or inputted or edited ongoing using our web based dashboard.

When a user performs a search, both the page text and the metadata is searched with the results returned almost instantly even when searching the entire archive. The search supports advanced Lucene query syntax requests such as fuzzy, proximity, term boosting and wildcards.  The search can be targeted to specific fields such as a keyword in the title of an article.
