New eLife journal picks HighWire

Share this on social media:

HighWire will be the platform for eLife, the new open-access life and biomedical sciences journal resulting from funder-researcher collaboration.

eLife is backed by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Max Planck Society, and the Wellcome Trust. The initiative's first aim is to launch an open-access journal for outstanding advances in life science and biomedicine, which is also a platform for experimentation and showcasing innovation in research communication.

'HighWire's deployment of open-source technology, commitment to interoperability, and enthusiasm to work with third-party developers gives eLife tremendous opportunities to explore new territory in research communication,' commented Ian Mulvany, eLife's head of technology.
