LOS GATOS, CA – June 18, 2020 – Scholarly publishing technology provider HighWire, currently celebrating its 25th year of business, is pleased to renew its hosting agreement with The Geological Society of London (GSL).
GSL has been a long-term and highly valued partner since 2006, with its online publications growing and diversifying throughout that time. There are now 15 GSL sites underpinned by HighWire’s hosting technologies – including a mixture of journals, books, memoirs and transactions – all of which feature a modern, intuitive and visually appealing user interface.
The self-service aspect that HighWire Hosting offers is something which is particularly valuable to GSL, allowing them to easily make changes to their sites, and collate content of particular types or on particular topics into collections. This flexibility and discoverability makes it much easier for readers to find what they’re looking for, as well as offering new ways for GSL to engage with our audiences or showcase particular content.
“HighWire has supported GSL for almost 15 years now, and over that time we have been continually impressed with the responsiveness of the team and the technical and customer support provided,” said Sarah Gibbs, Head of Production at GSL.
HighWire welcomes GSL’s decision to continue to grow the relationship by renewing services into 2022.
“As one of our longest-serving clients, GSL has played a key role in the HighWire Community over the years, inputting into a number of our industry initiatives and regularly presenting at our annual HighWire Publishers’ Meetings to share knowledge and learnings,” said John Sack, co-founder of HighWire. “We are delighted to extend our partnership as we continue to shape the future of scholarly publishing.”
