HighWire Press, a department of the Stanford University Libraries, hosts high-
impact scholarly journals, books, and other scholarly content on the Web,
primarily for not-for-profit societies. HighWire is in a period of growth

  * Coordinate tracking and communicating of new and/or custom feature development among all parties (Publication Managers, Project Managers, Developers, and Customers).
  * Assisting Publication Managers in setting and managing customer expectations and monitoring customer satisfaction
2) Customer Support. Publication Specialists are the first point of contact

aspects of online publication production. In addition, coordinate schedules

timely delivery and accurate/useable content. Coordinate with the HighWire
Production Manager for content conversion services, content analysis, and
input specifications for data suppliers.

  
4) Other projects may be assigned to the Publication Specialist, depending on
her/his special skills and interests, and organizational requirements. These
projects may come from HighWire customers or they may be internal HighWire
projects.

  
5) For all projects, the Publication Specialist is responsible for ensuring
thorough quality assurance testing of software and content before delivery to
the customer..

  
6) Meeting Organization: HighWire periodically hosts a meeting of publishers
in Stanford, Washington, DC, and London to conduct training and give sessions
related to areas of interest in the publishing industry. The Publication
Specialist may be required to assist in the planning and organization of these
meetings.

  
Required Qualifications:

  * College degree or equivalent work experience.
  * Ability to quickly learn and master software tools, such as word processing, spreadsheet, database, and project management tools.
