Our Communities and Partners

We work with scientific societies to ensure our journals are meeting the needs of their members and we nurture corporate partnerships with leading organizations that help us reach our goals.
To provide the best quality and service to research communities, authors, subscribers, and other stakeholders, we strive to partner with like-minded organizations with similar missions and values. We provide in-kind, monetary, and other support to a number of our community partners.

Community Partners

Research4Life is a public-private partnership of the WHO, FAO, UNEP, WIPO, Cornell, and Yale Universities and the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers. Working together with technology partner Microsoft, the partnership’s goal is to reduce the scientific knowledge gap between industrialized countries and the developing world. We provide access to our journal content to over 100 developing countries via Research4Life, INASP and TEEAL.
INASP is an international development charity working with a global network of partners to improve access, production and use of research information and knowledge, so that countries are equipped to solve their development challenges.
