Duke University Press Selects Silverchair for New Digital Products Platform

silverchairdup_pr_filled_k_pngSilverchair Information Systems (Silverchair) and Duke University Press announced today a new publishing technology partnership to redevelop and host Duke University Press’s extensive collection of scholarly journals, books, and electronic collections in the humanities and social sciences on Silverchair’s online publishing platform.

Duke University Press publishes more than 50 journals, offers five digital collections, and has well over 2,000 scholarly books available online. All humanities and social sciences journals and e-books will migrate to the Silverchair platform, providing scholars with a single reading and research experience across books and journals.

“We are enthusiastic to collaborate with another of the world’s most respected university presses,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “Duke University Press’s omni-format offerings will benefit greatly from our integrated, flexible delivery platform, enabling rapid ideation and experimentation in new ways to serve scholars and libraries. Supporting this deep and interconnected body of scholarship in the humanities and social sciences will drive Silverchair’s technology in new and exciting directions.”

“After long and careful assessment of platform technologies and service offerings, we believe Silverchair is the most capable of delivering the sort of integrated, responsive platform we have long envisioned for our books and journals—one that can showcase both the variety and the cohesion of our highly interdisciplinary scholarship,” said Steve Cohn, director of Duke University Press. “Silverchair offers us a modern, secure technology platform combined with the kind of creative and flexible approach necessary to match our innovative, dynamic publications and products.”

Duke University Press’s content will be available on the Silverchair platform in January 2018. Librarians and sales agents can consult our Platform Migration Resource Page for additional details.
