Zapnito’s technology is already used by Silverchair customers, leaders in the STM space, to create ‘knowledge networks’: hubs of collective expertise aligned to leading journals and societies. This partnership will see Zapnito and Silverchair’s technology integrate even more tightly, including via embeddable ‘knowledge feeds’ of curated, expert conversations within the Silverchair Platform.

“We are very excited about formally announcing our partnership with Silverchair,” said Charles Thiede, CEO & Co-Founder of Zapnito. “This allows us to integrate our two core products (Knowledge Feeds and Knowledge Networks) into the Silverchair Platform, providing their clients with even greater capabilities and value. Whether it be via expert networks or embedded feeds, Silverchair’s clients can increase engagement with their customers in new ways that are designed for their specific needs. We feel proud and excited to be a part of the Silverchair ecosystem and to be expanding ours in STM publishing and beyond.”

“Fostering the sharing and community discussion of scholarly research is a primary mission of publishers that use the Silverchair Platform,” said Jake Zarnegar, Silverchair’s Chief Product Officer. “Adding Zapnito’s technology better enables publishers to participate directly in that discussion and achieve a deeper level of engagement and impact with their expert communities.”
