Information for Librarians

The Scholarly Publishing Collective, managed by Duke University Press and powered by Silverchair, serves the library community by providing consistent, high-quality services for collection development, support, and access. The Collective journals are hosted on the Silverchair hosting platform, which many librarians know as a home to titles from Duke University Press and other distinguished publishers.
