OUR MISSION

Our mission is to make science open.

Research is the foundation of modern society and it’s thanks to advances in science that we enjoy longer, healthier and more prosperous lives than ever before in human history. We want to build on successful science and make it even more powerful by ensuring it is openly available. This way, society will be able to generate more knowledge and accelerate innovation, health and prosperity for all.

To achieve this goal, Frontiers pioneered an in-house Open Science technology platform. This includes a Collaborative Peer Review Platform, a Digital Editorial Office, article-level metrics and AIRA, an Artificial Intelligence Review Assistant.
