July 10, 2018 – Silverchair Information Systems (Silverchair) and IWA Publishing announced today the launch of IWA Publishing’s acclaimed water and environmental resources on the Silverchair Platform.
IWA Publishing Online is home to twelve Impact-Factor-leading journals within the field, among them Water Science and Technology and Journal of Hydroinformatics. The IWA Publishing book program includes cutting-edge, high-quality research for academics as well as reference works and manuals of practice for professionals. IWA Publishing’s extensive offerings also include Water Intelligence Online (WIO)—an online water, wastewater and environmental reference library. This online reference resource is a fully searchable, indexed archive from IWA Publishing’s books and research reports.
IWA Publishing and Silverchair collaborated on creating and launching a product-driven publishing platform that keeps pace with the rapid rate of development and scholarship in all aspects of water, wastewater, and related environmental fields. The new site features unique and intuitive user experiences for each of IWA Publishing’s different content types, including their over 800 books. Silverchair’s publisher tools enable IWA Publishing to offer variable pricing, to grow their portfolio by creating mixed-content-type collections, and to further promote their extensive open access program.
“IWA Publishing is a dynamic organization that is maximizing the impact of their publishing program through innovation and digital strategy,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “On the Silverchair Platform, IWA Publishing can now adapt, ideate, and expand their products across content types and subject matter, thereby unlocking the true value of the IWA Publishing content assets.”
