HighWire moves into new territory with journal hosting for China Anti-cancer Association

Los Gatos, CA – January 7, 2021 – Scholarly publishing technology provider HighWire, currently celebrating its 25th year of business, has expanded its global footprint with its first customer in China, the China Anti-Cancer Association (CACA). 

CACA, founded in 1984, is the leading professional society of oncology in China, with a mission to unite people involved in all branches of oncology and others with a similar interest in fighting cancer. 

HighWire has been selected to provide hosting for Cancer Biology & Medicine (CBM) through its JCore platform, along with its award-winning Vizor analytics module which will enable CACA to gain deep, real-time insights into the impact of articles. In addition to leveraging its unique and long-standing relationship with Google, HighWire will also be providing TrendMD integration for the CBM journal, delivering even greater discoverability. 

The quarterly published open-access journal provides innovative and significant information on the biological basis of cancer, cancer microenvironment, translational cancer research, and all aspects of clinical cancer research. CBM is a member of COPE and CrossRef, and now indexed in PubMed, Web of Science, and SCOPUS. The 2019 impact factor is 5.432, located in Q1 in both MEDICINE, RESEARCH & EXPERIMENTAL and ONCOLOGY categories. 

The selection comes following HighWire’s acquisition by MPS Ltd, a leading global provider of platforms and content solutions for the digital world which was established as an Indian subsidiary of Macmillan (Holdings) Limited in 1970. MPS is headquartered in India, with seven offices across three continents. 

“Joining HighWire will increase CBM’s global reach, enabling broader dissemination of the journal contents, particularly in the West, and helping attract more audience from all over the world”, said Dr Huiquin Liu, Managing Editor of CBM. 

“We are delighted to welcome CBM to HighWire and look forward to powering CBM’s mission”, said Rahul Arora, CEO of HighWire. “HighWire and all its platforms including JCore and Vizor now have renewed focus with thoughtful and meaningful roadmaps, reliable delivery, and excellent support”.
