SciPost discussions with sponsors

11 April 2022 

Last Tuesday April 5, the SciPost team presented a webinar to representatives of sponsoring institutions. SciPost informed them about the organisation, the team, the information we provide on our website, our financial situation and our current thoughts about support from sponsors contributions. SciPost is publishing 30% more papers each year and we discussed with sponsors how to manage this growth. About 25 participants attended the meeting and there was lively discussion, in particular about how to determine reasonable sponsorship levels. SciPost is a community-led initiative to put academics back in control of the scientific publishing process. We are delighted about 80 (and growing) institutions support our activities and want to discuss with us the best way forward. Thank you!
