Institutional partnerships for funder organizations

As a funder organization, you play an important part in enabling open-access publishing for researchers. Our institutional partnerships support you and your grantees with increased access to high-quality research, allowing you to stay up to date on the latest developments.

Enhanced collaboration for impact

The Frontiers Institutional Partnerships program fosters agreements between universities and/or research institutions to encourage open-access knowledge exchange. Our partnerships bring enhanced collaboration, resource sharing, and optimized funding opportunities, which leads to more impactful research outcomes.

  • You'll maximize your organization's research impact by enabling access to high-quality articles and high-impact journals while building upon the findings of the research you fund.

  • You'll strengthen your mission to advance science and serve the public interest by removing publishing barriers to high-value research.

  • You'll have access to an innovative platform to influence publishing standards, copyright policies, and pricing models while advocating for changes that align with your mission and values.

  • Your organization will benefit from cost-saving opportunities, reducing the cost of access to research. This will enable you to direct your budget to other important initiatives.
