On a mission  

Our mission is to enhance the reach, rigour, and relevance of science so that people can find, trust, and use it. This mission permeates all aspects of our operations, particularly when it comes to open science.​ We are committed to removing barriers and ensuring that research is discoverable so that readers can find and immediately access the information we publish.
