Scholarly Publishing: Project Muse and Highwire Press Announce Partnership
The Johns Hopkins University Press (JHUP) has reached an agreement with Stanford University’s HighWire Press to transition to the HighWire Open Platform as the new digital hosting and delivery platform for Project MUSE.
Over the past year, JHUP and its digital publishing unit Project MUSE have conducted an extensive search for a technology partner to assist in expanding the capacity of Project MUSE to support its current content offering and allow MUSE to pursue opportunities in developing new products, business models and service offerings for its growing community of more than 200 publishers and 2700 libraries.
HighWire’s history tracks very closely with that of Project MUSE, with similar missions and both having launched in 1995. Several of HighWire’s publishing partners (Duke University Press, The Oxford University Press, and the University of Wisconsin Press) also have content on the MUSE platform.
