European Respiratory Society Renews Journal and Book Hosting with HighWire

PRINCETON, June 8, 2021 – The European Respiratory Society (ERS) has once again chosen to renew its long-standing partnership with HighWire, the scholarly publishing technology provider.

HighWire hosts ERS’ four journals on its JCore hosting platform, including the flagship publication – European Respiratory Journal – as well as provides hosting and eCommerce functionality for ERS’ series of books. Inclusion of books within the platform began in 2013, and gives ERS the ability to deliver an enriched reader experience, and increased visibility for the program, thus opening up a new revenue stream.

A HighWire customer for over 15 years, ERS has piloted many transformative innovations and models now used across the ecosystem, such as Continuous Publishing. The renewed agreement extends the partnership between HighWire and ERS for another three years.

“We are happy to once again renew our partnership with HighWire, on the back of a productive relationship spanning many years,” said Elin Reeves, Director of Publications at ERS. “We look forward to exploring the new roadmaps and functionality which HighWire is developing for JCore following its acquisition last year by MPS.”
