FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Royal Society of Medicine Press choose HighWire for online hosting

The Royal Society of Medicine Press and Stanford University's HighWire
Press are delighted to announce their new partnership for online
journals publishing. Content from all 16 of the RSM Press journals will
be live on HighWire's premier ePublishing platform by early May 2008, as
RSM Press expands its HighWire presence.

"HighWire's reputation is excellent, and they host an unrivalled
selection of the world's leading medical journals. In addition, their
platform provides the flexibility and stability required for ePublishing
in the current climate," says Peter Richardson, the Managing Director of
RSM Press. "We have been working with the HighWire team for many years
on the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, and they were the
natural choice when we decided to consolidate our online journals onto a
single platform."

A key benefit of the new HighWire partnership is easier access to the
RSM Press eJournals Collection, which offers institutions the
opportunity to subscribe to all RSM Press journals at a special
collection rate. Covering a wide range of topics from sexual health to
tropical medicine, and from telemedicine to health policy, the RSM Press
eJournals Collection is part of a range of new purchasing and licensing
options available from RSM Press. 

"We see many ways in which HighWire can help RSM Press with their goals
to promote their prestigious branding," said John Sack, Director of
HighWire Press. "HighWire's new platform, H2O, will provide them with
the technical expertise and flexibility to layer new services on to
their online presence into the future."

Included on the new RSM platform are two journals which have never been
online before: Journal of Integrated Care Pathways and Journal of
Medical Biography. Each journal will be available with three years of
back content from launch, and access will be free to existing print
subscribers and eJournals Collection customers.

As an adjunct to the move, RSM Press have signed up to both LOCKSS and
Portico, to preserve their digital content for future generations.
