Scholarly publishing technology provider, HighWire, is thrilled to have once again renewed its long standing partnership with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL).
CSHL has been a valued customer for over 20 years, as part of an industry-leading and transformative partnership which has not only spanned journal hosting, manuscript submissions management, and content analytics, but has also seen the launch of the highly successful bioRxiv and medRxiv preprint servers.
Launched in 2013 as a non-profit community service, bioRxiv has brought preprint practice to the life sciences, and now contains 113,000 manuscripts. medRxiv, covering health sciences, followed in June 2019, and in 2020 posted more than 14,000 preprints.
bioRxiv and medRxiv have had a critical role in helping scientists worldwide rapidly share new findings with the research community during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, they posted over 52,000 manuscripts and page views on the servers reached as much as 10 million per month.
With this renewed agreement, HighWire will continue to host CSHL’s eight journals, including Genome Research, Genes & Development, Cold Spring Harbor Protocols, and Molecular Case Studies.
“In the face of unprecedented levels of preprint submission and server traffic during the pandemic, HighWire has provided constantly available, responsive, and scalable platforms that support our goals for rapidly disseminating knowledge,” said Dr John Inglis,co-founder of bioRxiv and medRxiv and Executive Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
