HighWire and BMJ Deliver Joint Innovation Lab

Sep 24, 2019

Scholarly publishing technology provider, HighWire, has announced a new journal hosting agreement with BMJ. Spanning the next five years, it coincides with the launch of a partnership innovation lab, bringing together some of the best minds from BMJ and HighWire to explore future initiatives in scholarly publishing.

BMJ has been a HighWire customer since 2005 and this new five-year contract marks the third generation of renewal. The innovation lab will see HighWire’s senior product and technology experts regularly meet with BMJ. This assembly of dedicated key technical architects and scholarly publishing thought-leaders will deliver an iterative and industry-leading innovation program.

The lab, which has met on multiple occasions in order to prove concept and viability, is already helping BMJ to nurture a number of initiatives and create a roadmap toward the future. By bringing like-minded people together to work openly, the lab will support transformation in BMJ’s publishing program, drive innovation in the HighWire platform, and set new heights for the industry.

BMJ site hosting continues to be provided via JCore, part of the HighWire Hosting solution, using the world-class HighWire Intelligent Platform. This provides BMJ powerful content ingestion, enrichment, and publishing infrastructure for their journal websites. The service delivers modern, customizable site designs that can be strategically configured in support of BMJ’s publishing goals.

As part of the evolving long-term relationship, HighWire has committed to providing an ongoing development agreement, ensuring future site enhancements and improvements are carried out on an ongoing and iterative basis.
