Highwire Expands Program for Books and Reference Works

May 29, 2009

HighWire Press, a division of the Stanford University Libraries and provider of digital content development and hosting solutions to the scholarly publishing community, announced an increase in the growth of its books program, with over 30 new titles launched online so far this year and hundreds more scheduled through 2009 and early 2010. HighWire has developed and hosted non-journal content, such as books, reference works, databases, continuing education, and conference proceedings sites. In 2000 the Oxford English Dictionary was launched on HighWire, and in 2003 Red Book Online, the reference work on childhood infectious disease published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, launched on HighWire. In addition to over 100 books, reference works, and other non-journal content sites, HighWire hosts editions of over 1200 full text journals in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and humanities, as well as cross-content products for niche markets that combine content from many different sources.
