Cancer Research Portals Launch on HighWire Platform

HighWire Press announced the launch of a suite of themed portals for the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the professional organization representing physicians who care for people with cancer. The subject-specific cancer portals are a one-stop resource for readers seeking scientific abstracts, videos, links, and other materials. For publishers, the portals offer a glimpse into the flexibility of HighWire’s Open Platform to re-purpose, integrate, and monetize content within and beyond their HighWire-hosted publications.

The 11 ASCO Cancer Portals seamlessly incorporate content from multiple sources: the Journal of Clinical Oncology, the Journal of Oncology Practice, ASCO meeting sites, news and reference sources, ASCO Clinical Practice Guidelines, as well as incoming links from PubMed and other relevant HighWire-hosted colleague publications. Each custom portal is focused on a targeted segment of oncology research, re-purposing content and presenting it in a way designed to reach new audiences.

“Themed sites, such as the ASCO Cancer Portals, are a clever way to frame a collection of scholarly content with related information, enabling an agile response to the needs of readers,” said John Sack, HighWire's founding director. “As part of our Open Platform Solutions, HighWire is actively developing a standardized mini-site template which will allow publishers to collect and connect content into useful, relevant, highly engaging, and quickly deployed sites.”

The HighWire Open Platform solution set will enable publishers to re-purpose, integrate, and monetize content within and beyond their HighWire-hosted publications. The ASCO custom portal mini-sites integrate up to eight different types and sources of information. This comprehensive approach is being implemented using Drupal, one of the world’s most popular open source frameworks for website enhancement.
