HighWire Incorporates Article-Level Metrics With ImpactStory

HighWire Press announced that it entered into a strategic collaboration with ImpactStory, a researcher-led, nonprofit organization. ImpactStory aggregates impact data—the number of times an article is accessed and mentioned in editorials, news, tweets and blogs, as well as bookmarked, favorited, and recommended, in addition to those cited by another research paper, from sources such as CrossRef, Mendeley, and PubMed.

As part of the collaboration with ImpactStory, HighWire will manage the relationship on behalf of the participating publishers on the HighWire Open Platform, registering articles and displaying these metrics on their online journal and book sites.

According to Tom Rump, managing director at HighWire, “Our strategy is to continually embrace the future of electronic publishing by supporting technology that provides insight into furthering the research communication process.”

ImpactStory is a web service that makes it quick and easy to view the impact of a wide range of research output. ImpactStory goes beyond traditional measurements of research output—citations to papers—to embrace a much broader evidence of use across a wide range of scholarly output types. Researchers can view metrics on collections of their research objects, and publishers can display metrics on their product pages.
