Portland Press is moving its journals, including the Biochemical Journal, Clinical Science and Bioscience Reports, to the HighWire Open Platform. The new journal sites will see more than 10,000 pages of research published annually and a catalogue of papers dating back 100 years hosted on HighWire by mid-2015. 

‘After careful analysis, HighWire was identified as the best platform to take our journals forward,’ said Kate Baillie, managing director of Portland Press and chief executive of the Biochemical Society, the not-for-profit owner of Portland Press. 

‘HighWire is at the forefront of digital scholarly publishing, with many leading journals in the life sciences relying on its community-based strengths and its track record for innovation and technological support. Our new sites will benefit from this support and will allow us to deliver a modern platform for our readers, authors and subscribers. For our readers it will be easier to find, read, share and explore our authoritative catalogue of papers, while authors that publish with us will benefit from greater discoverability of their work.’
