World Scientific to freeze Journal prices for 2021 -

STM publisher World Scientific recognises that it is a difficult time for libraries worldwide to maintain their holdings. Many institutions have seen their budget affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In view of this, World Scientific has decided to freeze the prices of its journals for 2021. Only journals that are increasing the number of issues in 2021 or have experienced a significant increase in articles published will have their prices adjusted. In total, 7 journals will be increasing the number of issues and 8 journals will have prices adjusted due to the latter reason.

World Scientific has signed the Wellcome Trust Pledge and is participating in the global open research effort to rapidly disseminate relevant knowledge from its publications so that countries can better manage the COVID-19 crisis. Freezing the journal prices for 2021 reaffirms the commitment of the company to help libraries in this difficult time.
