HighWire Press Commits to Scholarly Annotation Initiative
HighWire Press joined Annotating All Knowledge, an organization dedicated to exploring the benefits of building an open, common framework for scholarly annotation. With this coalition, HighWire will work to create and implement a standards-based, open web layer that allows researchers to gather notes and link them across the web.
“There are many forms of annotations, from public or private group discussions to personal notes and peer review,” says Tara Robenalt, HighWire’s VP of product strategy and marketing. “[W]e recognize the value that an open, standard approach will bring to both publishers (to extend reach) and researchers (to increase efficiency).”
