(Charlottesville, VA and McLean, VA) February 8, 2017 – Silverchair Information Systems and GeoScienceWorld (GSW) today announced a new partnership to redevelop and enhance GSW’s domain-leading collection of earth science research on the Silverchair Platform.

GSW is built on 46 leading geoscience journals and a rapidly growing list of 1,300 ebooks from 28 premier publishers in the geosciences, enhanced by deep integration with nearly four million records in the GeoRef database. All GSW content will migrate to the Silverchair Platform in 2017, providing scholars and professionals with a comprehensive and consolidated discovery, reading, and research experience across all content formats and databases.

In addition to enhancing access to the GSW research collection, the two organizations will work collaboratively to develop innovative tools and services specifically designed for use by geoscientists.

“GeoScienceWorld is intently focused on opportunities to upgrade research communications across the earth sciences,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “On the Silverchair Platform, GSW will be equipped to offer readers, authors, researchers, and societies across academia and industry novel methods for discovery, collaboration, and dissemination.”
