[LINK] multi publisher web sites

For some lighter weight options take a look at:
It might also be possible to achieve the same with nothing more than a web
server, depending on how much editorial control you want (i.e, if it is
control over who publishes where, any webserver will support this, if it is
approval of their content you will need a much more complex system).
In my experience, the best alternative is to distribute total control of
their own directories to the publishing orginisations, and ask them to
notify you when they make updates.
This allows a timely review of their content, but doesn't delay publication
if the reviewer is unavailable.
You can make this very low tech, or try to run a big work flow environment.
If you are interested reply off list and I will be happy to discuss various
options including the difficulties of handling the high tech solutions.
