Our publishing solutions also:


Support the research journey, ensuring discoverability and improving academic rigor and reproducibility

We publish an ever expanding range of peer reviewed article types as well as important research outputs that we don’t peer review, such as policy documents, technical reports, and posters.


Provide article-based indicators of use, engagement, and influence

We include a broad range of article-based metrics such as citations, views, downloads, shares, and media mentions.


Showcase all the important contributions to research

Our diversity of publication formats means that individuals in all research roles and at all career stages can get credit for their work, and tell the full story of their research.


Foster trust and confidence in research

Discover a post-publication, fully open peer review model which puts transparency and reproducibility at the center. This model also ensures we comply with funder open access mandates, including PLAN S.


Accelerate discovery and the generation of new knowledge for others to use

Articles are published in as few as 14 days after submission, so that research can be built upon even faster.


Support research evaluation and impact reporting    

We capture comprehensive grant funding information, alongside extensive article information, to facilitate funding links and attribution.
