Share this on social media:

HighWire Press, the technology platform and partner to scholarly publishers and societies, is to participate in a coalition to explore the benefits of building an open, common framework for scholarly annotation.

As a member of the Annotating All Knowledge coalition – representing organisations in the technology and scholarly publishing communities – HighWire will be part of the investigation into how to create and implement a standards-based, open web layer that will allow researchers to gather notes and link them across the web, regardless of platform.
'There are many forms of annotations, from public or private group discussions to personal notes and peer review,' said Tara Robenalt, HighWire's vice president of product strategy and mMarketing, 'and we recognise the value that an open, standard approach will bring to both publishers (to extend reach) and researchers (to increase efficiency).'
'HighWire was founded to deliver technology solutions to influential organisations engaged in disseminating scholarly research,' said Dan Filby, HighWire's CEO. 'By participating in the early stages of this conversation, we will continue to ensure our publishing partners and their valuable content is at the forefront of digital discoverability, while we continue to align our products with our founding ideals.'
