What is it?

Silva News Network provides a News and Events application for Silva that runs out-of-the-box. It offers the capability to deploy multiple news sources within an organization, say, in different departments, where some or all sources can be aggregated into a central news page. The different departments might have their own news page too. By adjusting SNN filters, editors can choose what target audiences and subjects their aggregator collects, and have granular control of display down to an article level.


Thanks to the University of Luton, University College London, Marc Petitmermet of ETH Zürich, Andrew Altepeter of Bethel University in St. Paul, USA, and the Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Informatics for support.
