HighWire to host British Journal of General Practice

The Royal College of General Practitioners and HighWire Press are pleased to announce a strategic agreement to develop and host the British Journal of General Practice (BJGP) on the HighWire Open Platform.

A highly respected peer-reviewed journal, the BJGP is one of the world’s most highly cited journals of general practice and primary health care. The new site on HighWire will offer its readers a flexible and user-friendly online experience including a dedicated mobile website, Shibboleth authentication, and full text pdf archives back to 1953.

“The College was impressed by HighWire’s proven track record in STM publishing and their feature-rich platform,” said Catharine Hull, BJGP Manager. “We are looking forward to being part of the HighWire community.”

“HighWire understands how the information needs of practitioners and researchers are constantly evolving,” said Tom Rump, Managing Director at HighWire. “By combining the strength of HighWire’s technology, with our long history of working successfully with medical publishers, we are poised to help support the BJGP’s reach to the Royal College of General Practioners’ esteemed members.”
