Our values

We are unwavering in our mission and act with urgency to make all science openly available. We know that immediate, free access to high-quality research is vital for achieving this. With open access publishing, knowledge is being shared immediately, without restrictions, enabling researchers to collaborate better and innovate faster to solve the critical challenges we face as humanity.

Scientists power modern society. It is thanks to advances in science that we enjoy longer, healthier and more prosperous lives than ever before in human history.

That's why every decision we make starts with one consideration: what’s best for the researcher – the people doing the science? Our role is to provide the world’s scientists with the best, the fastest, and the most efficient publishing experience.
