ScienceOpen for Scholarly Societies

Scholarly societies represent a very broad range of publishing activities from highly professional subscription journals to new open access ventures. They have in common, however, a strong mandate to serve their scholarly communities. Scholarly societies depend on their publications to promote their field and support their members in a rapidly changing digital environment. With a mix of license types and technical solutions, scholarly society publishers are looking for innovative and flexible partners for promoting their content and members.
