Who We Are

Silverchair is the leading independent platform partner for scholarly and professional publishers. We build and host websites, online products, and digital libraries for our clients’ content, helping them to thrive, evolve, and fulfill their missions. Publishers like the American Medical Association, MIT Press, and Oxford University Press work with Silverchair to get their books, journals, and educational content into the hands of scientists, doctors, and researchers

Our mission is to empower the creators and users of scholarly and professional knowledge to maximize their impact on humanity.

(TLDR: We build technology to spread research that makes the world a better place.)
