Frontiers releases progress results for 2020, milestone year for the open-access publisher -

Open-access scholarly publisher Frontiers has shared its progress results for 2020. The organization, which was founded in 2007, reached several significant milestones last year. These include more than one billion research article views and downloads, the publication of its 150,000th research article, a 10% increase in staff count worldwide, and maintaining its position as the fifth most-cited publisher.

Of particular note in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic was the launch of Frontiers’ Coronavirus Knowledge Hub in March 2020. Since its launch, 3,560 articles have been selected for publication from more than 10,160 submissions. Articles have been viewed and downloaded more than 20 million times and account for more than USD4 Million in fee waivers. The platform has also been used to aggregate an estimated USD1.5 Billion in funding opportunities for coronavirus research through 214 funding calls.

The announcement comes after the scholarly search database Dimensions revealed earlier this year that open-access publications have surpassed subscription publications for the first time, indicating a major shift in an industry known for its resistance to change.
