Your Reliable Partner in Those Challenging Times

Visibility for research, Open Access or budget – everywhere you turn, questions arise. Let us be your trusted partner in finding the right avenues for providing access to crucial information and great ideas.

Open Access is a topic that is so important nowadays, yet there is still so much to learn about how to push forward. We are dedicated to accelerating a sustainable transition to Open Access, building on the power of Open Science to maximize effective, efficient, and open scholarly communications.

Customizing for individual requirements is becoming more and more essential. Knowing that these challenges are rarely conquered with a universal solution, we offer pick-and-choose options specifically designed for your institution, creating and combining products and services tailor-made for every stage of the research cycle. We support you in fulfilling the needs of your customers, from scientists to learners to faculty members.

Alongside these services, you can also discover new perspectives with our E-Learning series, Campus. This series enables researchers to navigate more easily through the publishing process, including a dedicated course on how to promote your research in Social Media.

Knowing that visibility is key today, especially for institutions and faculties, it can be an important criteria to reach a broader public. We have a science communication agency in our portfolio that can turn research results in different types of media, from animations to podcast in language that is easily understood.
