The Global Academic Division of Oxford University Press (OUP) has entered into an agreement with Silverchair Information Systems to migrate its extensive portfolio of journals and many of its online products to a new publishing platform powered by Silverchair’s SCM technology. PRWeb brought this news to us in the release, “Oxford University Press Announces Agreement with Silverchair to Accelerate Its Ambitious Technology Vision.”
OUP publishes more than 350 high-impact journals on behalf of hundreds of professional societies and associations. More than 20 broad collections spanning medicine and health, arts and humanities, law, dictionaries and reference, science and mathematics, and social sciences are included. Few would argue with the quality of OUP’s journals list and many will be pleased to have easier access to their resources.
This migration will consolidate OUP’s digital publishing product operations to a single platform that supports optimized user experiences across a wide array of content types and functional use models. The result will advance OUP’s product segmentation and targeting, discoverability, and analytics.
