HighWire Press

HighWire Press

HighWire Press is a division of the Stanford University Libraries that produces the online versions of high-impact, peer-reviewed journals and other scholarly content. Recipient of the 2003 Association for Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) Award for "Service to Not-for-Profit Publishing", HighWire collaborates with scholarly societies, university presses and publishers to host a large body of clinical and research literature. Over 70 of the 200 most-frequently-cited journals in science are hosted on HighWire.cite web |url=http://highwire.stanford.edu/ |title=HighWire Press Homepage |accessdate=2008-02-17 |format= |work=]


A division of the Stanford University Libraries, HighWire Press hosts the largest repository of high impact, peer-reviewed content, with over 1100 journals and over 4 million full text articles from over 130 scholarly publishers. HighWire-hosted publishers collectively make over 1.5 million articles available for free.

In 1995, the Journal of Biological Chemistry (JBC) appeared online through HighWire. Since then a number of high-impact prestigious journals have joined the service, including "Science", the "New England Journal of Medicine", "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences" and "JAMA".

In 2005 the website underwent a redesign, which was greeted in professional reviews. In addition, the "citation map" feature allows researchers to follow a paper's citation through other articles journals.

While HighWire is primarily a hosting facility, a 2007 study showed that its search engine outperformed PubMed in the identification of desired articles, and yielded a higher number of search results than when the same search was performed on PubMed. PubMed, however, was faster.cite journal |author=Vanhecke TE, Barnes MA, Zimmerman J, Shoichet S |title=PubMed vs. HighWire Press: a head-to-head comparison of two medical literature search engines |journal=Comput.
