ALPSP’s new site hits the shelves

We’re delighted to announce our latest website launch for new clients the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP)! This website has been more than 2 years in the making and we’re very proud that after working closely with ALPSP we’ve produced a site that boasts a fresh, responsive design and future-proof functionality.

Our History

ALPSP became part of Senior’s community of membership websites in the Autumn of 2013. As most of you will be aware, the digital world looked a lot different back then, and ALPSP’s new site is a testimony to ALPSP’s maintenance of their vision and Senior’s ability to adapt and evolve the production of a website with changing technologies.

What did they want from their website?

Like most membership organisations starting afresh with a new digital agency, ALPSP were looking for a new direction for their online presence. They wanted a site which would challenge the way they presented themselves to potential members, and stand the organisation as a contemporary and up-to-date source of knowledge for the publishing industry.

Their members are highly learned, so the site had to be clear and concise, and needed to help members to access information freely, and provide advice and skills on publishing scholarly works effectively. It was also essential for us to provide a smooth integration between River, our resident content management system, and their own membership CRM system,

Key features

Stand out features for the new ALPSP site include the training and events section; it can often be time-consuming for users to navigate around these sections effectively, so we simplified the processes and provided a fluid user journey using minimal design. There is also a highly functional online shop where users can purchase digital content and books, and members can sign up for e-alerts to keep up with the latest goings on at the organisation and in the publishing industry as a whole.


We’re proud we’ve been able to provide ALPSP with a site which has not only grown over time for the organisation, but has received extremely positive feedback across ALPSP’ membership community. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the organisation.
