Purpose-Led Publishing is a coalition of three publishers in the field of physical sciences: AIP Publishing, the American Physical Society and IOP Publishing.
Together, as publishers that will always put purpose above profit, we have defined a set of industry standards that underpin high-quality, ethical scholarly communications.
We are proudly declaring that science is our only shareholder.
Invest 100% of our funds back into science
Publish only the content that genuinely adds to scientific knowledge
Ensure our terms are reasonable
Put research integrity ahead of profit
Admit our errors and set them right
Relinquish our not-for-profit status
Have shareholders for whom we put profit above purpose
AIP Publishing, the American Physical Society, and IOP Publishing have joined forces to create Purpose-Led Publishing (PLP), a new coalition with a promise to always put purpose above profit.Find out more
