HighWire Press, Stanford University, and Dragonfly Sales and Marketing Consulting have renewed their commitment to support scholarly publishers in their efforts to help library consortia to access a collection of high-impact life science content from the Independent Scholarly Publishers Group (ISPG).

Working together with local sales agents during the past 18 months, Dragonfly, HighWire and 23 HighWire-affiliated publishers have provided access to top research to more than 950 institutions throughout the world.

This includes more than 30 consortia from the United Kingdom (JISC) to Sweden (BIBSAM), and from Korea (KESLI) to Australia (CAUL).

'The Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) Library started a trial to the Independent Scholarly Publishers Group’s (ISPG) electronic journals in April, 2012,' said Wangqin, librarian at CAMS.

'We chose to subscribe to the collection because 60 per cent of our library’s total journal usage during the trial was from the ISPG publications. Access to the ISPG journals is simple, they’re easy to search, and provide a valuable resource to our research community.'
