Who we are
ISJ is a leading publisher of cutting-edge research. We are committed to bringing the most significant, up-to-date information to scientists and researchers. Our goal is to engage the scientific community by communicating critical, exciting discoveries made today that will impact the future of scholarship. We operate as an independent publisher with a global reputation for quality products and services.
ISJ mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. A vast amount of the knowledge that would be valuable to many people is currently only available to a few — either locked in people’s heads, or only accessible to select groups. We want to connect the people who have knowledge to the people who need it, to bring together people with different perspectives so they can understand each other better, and to empower everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world.
The potential for this is huge. If we can execute on our mission, we’re going to make a big impact on the world. We just need to get a smart group of researchers and scientists together that can get us there.
We are a veritable online platform for the scientific community to publish open-access articles and network with colleagues, thus empowering researchers to change the way science is communicated, through open access publication and open science tools. Our vision is to maintain an Open Access platform where everybody has an equal opportunity to seek, share and generate knowledge.
