The Silverchair Platform for Research offers scale, flexibility, efficiency, and discoverability to scholarly and professional publishers with a wide range of content volumes, varieties, and specializations. Over 25 years at the forefront of publishing technology has enabled us to expand our offerings beyond journals and books, to other areas of key importance for society publishers—including news, multimedia, proceedings, and more.
Clients of all sizes benefit from our robust self-serve site management tools – SiteManager, SiteBuilder, ProductBuilder, and Zipline – allowing publisher staff to manage all facets of their sites, including subscription and access management, content uploading, production and publication management, web page editing and layout, collection creation, e-commerce management, and reporting and analytics.
These tools empower publishers to manage all relevant activities on their own, in real time, so that their organization can respond and adapt to business and mission needs.
Launched in 2020, Silverchair Composer extends the omni-format content capabilities of the Silverchair Platform with support for “semi-structured content,” such as blogs, commercial or sponsored content, journalistic features, marketing pieces, news, or white papers. This content, which can be composed, edited, and published via an intuitive WYSIWYG interface, receives the same first-class publishing experience—with robust search, browse, and display treatment—as highly structured content like journals and books.
“We wanted a robust platform and a company that was forward-thinking – that was important to us.
