What We Do
Scholarly and professional publishers use the Silverchair Platform to deliver distinctive online sites and products from their unique content.
Silverchair includes comprehensive product development and migration services, online management tools, and ongoing support to ensure publishers achieve their product vision.
The Readium Foundation is an Open Source Foundation collaboratively developing technology to accelerate the adoption of EPUB 3 and the Open Web Platform by the Digital Publishing Industry.
Readium Project Goals
The fundamental goal of the Readium project is to produce a set of robust, performant, spec-compliant reading system toolkits that support digital publishing formats (e.g. EPUB, Web Publications etc.) and can be deployed in browsers or built into native apps on iOS, Android or the desktop.
Libero publishing suite
Designed for academic publishing of the digital age, Libero is an open-source platform of services and tools available for hosted and self-hosted applications.
The Libero open-source platform helps scholarly publishers take a digital-first approach to everything we do. We’ve started with Libero Publisher, but there’s much more to come.
The Open Research Library (ORL) will include all Open Access scholarly book content worldwide on one platform for user-friendly discovery, offering a seamless experience navigating more than 20,000 Open Access books. This comprehensive collection of peer-reviewed Open Access books will be openly accessible for everyone. Libraries investing in the Open Research Library contribute to the development of a vital infrastructure for the global research community, while participating libraries have the opportunity to benefit from a set of exclusive services.
MediArXiv is a free, community-led digital archive for media, film, and communication research (hosted on the Open Science Framework). We provide a non-profit platform for media, film, and communication scholars to upload their working papers, pre-prints, accepted manuscripts (post-prints), and published manuscripts. The service is open for articles, books, and book chapters.
The mission of MediArXiv is to open up media, film, and communication research to a broader readership and to help build the future of scholarly communication. In the course of its developments, MediArXiv is working toward interoperability with other important open access scholarly platforms in the humanities and social sciences, such as Humanities Commons.
MediArXiv will launch early 2019, and will then be opened for submissions.
EDP Open is a newly developed bespoke open access platform that will provide all the modern functionality required for easy search/find/location of relevant and related content published in an open access (free) environment. The emphasis of the design is simple and functional to enhance reader usage and access to content of interest. Publication will be online only and will provide timely publication with competitive accept to publication periods.
EDP has developed an expertise recognised internationally for processing and dissemination of scientific information and works in partnership with numerous learned societies, institutions and others publishers, globally.
EDP Sciences publishes more than 50 academic journals, most of them with an impact factor and among them prestigious journals such as Astronomy & Astrophysics (IF: 4.487), EPJ the European Physical Journals series, EPL Europhysics Letters, etc.
