Staying open to open science needs | Research Information

“At Silverchair, our clients are innovators, experimenting with emerging content formats, OA models, and more, all of which rely on technology to be implemented in a way that is seamless for the end-users. This means maintaining (and scaling) technology that is flexible enough to accommodate whatever new models our publishers bring to us, whether it’s IWA Publishing with Subscribe to Open, MIT Press with Direct To Open, our society partners piloting smaller scale transformative agreements, or whatever comes next.
