(Charlottesville, VA and New York, NY) February 26, 2019 – Silverchair announced today a partnership with Rockefeller University Press (RUP) to host their leading biomedical research hybrid journals - Journal of Cell Biology (JCB), Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM), and Journal of General Physiology (JGP) - on the Silverchair Platform.

“RUP required both a flexible and modern platform as well as a highly-responsive service partner,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “Silverchair’s partnership philosophy offers these complementary tracks to fulfill RUP’s needs for their high-impact publications. Silverchair’s extensive experience delivering biomedical and life sciences content provides RUP with expertise and capabilities that will enhance the user experience and discoverability of their publications.”

“After an extensive review of competitive platforms, we found that Silverchair’s offerings synced perfectly with our journals’ needs,” says RUP Executive Director Susan King, PhD. “Our first priority is to serve the scientific community, and the Silverchair platform ensures that we meet this commitment by providing an excellent reading experience with cutting edge functionality.”

RUP’s nonprofit journals are committed to quality and integrity in scientific publishing and use the latest technologies and carry out rigorous peer review, apply the highest standards of novelty, mechanistic insight, data integrity, and general interest to fulfill RUP’s mission of publishing excellent science. RUP journals were established by the research community, and editorial decisions and policies continue to be driven by scientists who actively contribute to their fields, appreciate the value of peer review, and desire a better publication experience for all.

RUP is based in New York City and is a department of The Rockefeller University, a leading biomedical research university dedicated to conducting innovative, high-quality research to improve the understanding of life for the benefit of humanity.
