Abstract—SaaS (Software as a Service) has been attracted significant attentions from both industry and academia. Owing to serving multiple clients in the Long Tail, many notable SaaS applications have accomplished big successes in many traditional domains, such as CRM (Customer Relationship Management) and HRM (Human Resource Management). To promote the effect and efficiency of the traditional publishing industry, a solution of CPP (Cloud Publishing Platform) based on SaaS is proposed. Compared to the traditional e-publishing systems used by the publishers, it has the following distinguished features: 1) it is developed and operated by independent SaaS provider who not only provides valuable publishing services to enterprise tenants, such as periodical presses, but also provides significant services to individual tenants, such as scholars and researchers; 2) any individual tenant is not just a dedicator to a specific publisher, but a dedicator to all enterprise tenants, and his academic reputation can be accumulated by all the activities carried out in the platform; 3) a publishing cycle will be established based on CPP and benefit all the stakeholders. At the end, five key points of developing and operating a successful SaaS application are concluded, which can be used as a guideline to general SaaS application development.

Index Terms—SaaS; multi-tenancy; manuscript submission and review; sustainable ecological environment
