RSC is the largest organization in Europe for advancing the chemical sciences, with more than 54,000 members and an international publishing business. In seeking to rejuvenate their books program, RSC sought a partner whose technology gave them the flexibility to offer new digital products and sales models while adhering to the highest industry standards.
“The Royal Society of Chemistry hosts an incredible publishing program with an esteemed heritage,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “With Silverchair, RSC can continue to evolve their book business with the ability to experiment more quickly, allowing them to create innovative digital offerings for their customers. We are delighted to welcome them to the Silverchair community and to support them in achieving their ambitious goals.”
“The new books platform is the result of months of collaboration and testing,” said Emma Wilson, RSC Director of Publishing. “The improvements delivered by the migration will change the way researchers interact with our ebooks, offering an upgraded digital reading experience, better functionality and more ways to use the content."
