HighWire

Palo Alto, California - United States

HighWire is a division of the Stanford University Libraries. Founded in 1995, with the launch of the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC Online). Science, the Journal of Neuroscience, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS) soon joined with HighWire to become pioneers who defined today's online journal. HighWire quickly became known for combining cutting-edge technology with long-term organizational stability and has maintained a leadership position in the industry ever since.

Our mission is to ensure the continuing success of independent, society-based and other scientific and scholarly publishers in their efforts to disseminate high-quality content worldwide. An enterprise of Stanford University, HighWire builds both the community and the technological environment that publishers need to thrive within the challenging business of electronic publishing. HighWire and its publishing partners develop and explore new ideas and emerging technologies to innovate sustainable solutions that meet the ongoing challenges of research communication.
