The complete scientific publication portal
Managed by professional scientists
For open, global and perpetual access to science

Please join the SciPost Supporting Partners Board

Preamble:

SciPost follows a different funding model than most traditional publishers. It operates on an entirely not-for-profit basis, and charges neither subscription fees nor article processing charges; instead, its activities are financed through a cost-slashing consortial model.

By making a small financial commitment, the institutions and organizations that benefit from SciPost’s activities can become Supporting Partners. This enables SciPost to perform all of its publication-related activities, maintain its online portal and implement its long-term development plan. Details of the consortial funding scheme and how to join can be found on our Partners page. There, you will find a one-page Prospectus summarizing the scheme, and also a draft Partner Agreement providing full details.

Petition statement:

I support SciPost's cost-slashing financial model for scientific publishing, and encourage my home institution and the funding bodies supporting my work to give concrete support to SciPost by joining its Supporting Partners Board.

Please consider signing this petition
