HighWire Press and PaperHive partner to enable research annotation and collaboration workflows

HighWire customers can use PaperHive Channels to attract readers, support research team online  engagement with books and journals, and improve measurability of research sharing 

September 19, 2017, Los Gatos, Calif, USA: HighWire Press is delighted to announce its partnership with PaperHive, a market-leading annotation system and copyright-compliant collaborative research platform.  HighWire offers streamlined integration of PaperHive to world-leading publishers who want to drive reader engagement and improve research workflows.

“PaperHive’s technology supports collaboration at an impressive scale. Over a thousand comments may be contributed on a document of any length, from a ten page journal article to a 500 page book,” said Dan Filby, CEO at HighWire.

More than a comment feature, PaperHive offers private and public collaborative reading and communication workflows for the research community.  PaperHive helps teams discuss research, manage multiple projects, and create shared article libraries. Communication about research articles can move out of emails to a richer online experience.

Editor and author updates can attract new and returning readers to publications.  Deep links to any text passage, citable annotations, and the ability to follow articles encourage readers to revisit publications. Downloads and sharing on PaperHive are COUNTER-compliant and automatically registered on the publisher’s platform.  HighWire and PaperHive support annotation standards defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the standards body for the Web, enabling the export of annotations via API or manually in a standard format.

“HighWire has a strong track record of investing in integrations to increase discoverability. We look forward to collaborating with HighWire and publishers through this partnership to improve research communication workflows and support product innovation,” said Dr. André Gaul, CEO of PaperHive.
