PRINCETON, US, MARCH 30, 2021 – Scholarly publishing technology provider, HighWire, is delighted that IOS Press has chosen to upgrade onto Scolaris, HighWire’s next-generation content hosting platform.

IOS Press has hosted its journals with HighWire since 2015, and is now seeking to consolidate its books and journals onto one centralized platform that will enable content linking, cross-selling and discoverability across its entire content corpus of 100+ journals and approximately 75 books per year. 

Scolaris has been specifically designed to handle a huge variety of content types as first-rate citizens of the site, appearing not only on landing pages but in search results and ‘related content’ widgets. 

IOS Press is committed to delivering high visibility and discoverability of published content, as well as flexible licensing and ecommerce options. Scolaris’ powerful cross-pollination mechanism will give readers and researchers rapid access to vital information no matter the source, as well as opening up new potential revenue streams to IOS Press through integrated ecommerce, licensing and subscriptions management. 

“We are excited to enter into a new stage of our relationship with HighWire by renewing our hosting agreement for another 5 years and migrating onto the Scolaris platform,” said Popke Huizinga, Deputy Director at IOS Press. “The cutting-edge semantic technology and modernized user interface of Scolaris will help us to better serve our community while supporting a range of business models and revenue streams.”
