American Association for Cancer Research renews commitment to HighWire Hosting

LOS GATOS, APRIL 28, 2020 – Scholarly publishing tech provider, HighWire, is pleased to announce that the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) has renewed its commitment to HighWire as provider of its journal hosting and analytics services.

The AACR has been a valued customer of HighWire for over a decade, and has continued to grow and scale its use of services over that time – including trail-blazing use of HighWire Analytics, Code Ocean integration, and the addition of the AACR’s ninth journal – Blood Cancer Discovery – in late 2019.

HighWire is immensely proud to continue to support and enable the dissemination of knowledge and research findings for the AACR, the first and largest cancer research organization dedicated to accelerating the conquest of cancer.

Christine Battle, Publisher and Vice President, Scientific Publications at the AACR, said, “HighWire’s services provide a key role in our publishing processes, and our decision to renew our agreement with HighWire is a reflection of that role.”

“We have had a strong relationship with the AACR for many years, which utilises not only our core Hosting solutions but has also led the industry in its innovative use of our award-winning Analytics suite,” said Founding Director of HighWire, John Sack, “We look forward to continuing to build on this partnership and contributing to the battle against what remains one of the most common and aggressive diseases in the world.”
