Over twenty publishers use HighWire's Impact Vizor for faster, easier 'evidenced-based' publishing insights
Twenty-one publishers now use Impact Vizor by HighWire Press, a suite of interactive, visualized analytics viewers which launched in August 2015. Impact Vizor was an ALPSP 2015 Award for Innovation in Publishing finalist. Today publishers use the seven dashboards in Impact Vizor to visualize, analyze and compare editorial programs for rapid insights. HighWire developed the tools with critical input from several publishers. At the HighWire Community meeting recently held at Stanford, publishers shared several ways they use Impact Vizor to evaluate and develop their publishing programs.
