JULY 11 2019, LOS GATOS – Scholarly publishing tech provider, HighWire, today announced that Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is using HighWire’s Impact Vizor tool. The award-winning technology will provide SIAM with insight into the reach and impact of its portfolio of journals.
Named ‘Best Business Intelligence Reporting & Analytics Solution’ at the 2018 SIIA CODiE Awards, Impact Vizor brings early citation and usage data together in interactive viewers to help journals make fast, informed decisions.
Kivmars Bowling, Publications Director at SIAM said:
“Impact Vizor will enable us to take an evidence-based approach to our editorial decision making, accelerating our ability to analyze and visualize trends and gaps. We will be able to track the performance of our current publishing output at a granular level, both in terms of citations and Mendeley saves, as well as harness the rejected article tracker to identify whether any rejected content subsequently received citations elsewhere.
These data insights will enrich our editorial discussions and strategic planning for SIAM’s publishing program.”
Founded in 1951, SIAM is an international society of more than 14,500 individual, academic and corporate members from 85 countries. SIAM helps build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology to solve real-world problems through publications, conferences, and community. SIAM publishes 18 journals and around 20 books per year.
Dan Filby, CEO at HighWire said:
“SIAM’s adoption of Impact Vizor is a great example of how we help leading scholarly publishers make data-driven, evidence-based editorial and business decisions. We very much look forward to working with Kivmars and the SIAM team, to understand the valuable insights they obtain, and gain feedback to inform our continued customer focus and product development.”
