Widen the reach, deepen the impact
Our technology is in the service of knowledge. We provide the nexus where it is collected, certified, stored and shared. By simplifying the publishing process, we widen the reach, deepen the impact and accelerate the exchange of ideas.
Our expertise is in the service of knowledge. From peer review to putting content out into the world, and from a niche journal to multiple publications, we give publishers the strategies to connect the best minds to the most people.
HighWire is a Silicon Valley technology company that’s backed by significant independent private equity investment, from Accel–KKR. This support enables us to continuously develop and improve our products and service to customers.
Still part-owned by Stanford, our aim is to bring cutting-edge digital solutions to help publishers and societies improve their engagement, impact and revenue.
