Pivot Science Publications is an international academic publisher founded by a collaborative group of internationally renowned researchers who endorse Open Access, and experienced journal editors who have devoted themselves to scholarly publishing for more than a decade. Our team is conscientious and committed to maintaining an open attitude to the rapid evolution of science and science publishing.
We work in collaboration with a number of organizations designated by the federal and provincial governments of Canada. We have been privileged to be able to leverage their networks and resources in support of our publishing service.
Our mission is to promote the development of science by supporting innovation and evolution in scientific publishing. In partnership with innovative organizations, our major efforts are focused upon simplifying and accelerating the process of science sharing, while making the sharing mechanism more efficient and affordable for society at large.
Values embedded in both our daily and long-term practices are aligned with the call of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a global blueprint designed to promote a better and more sustainable future for all. Our primary endeavors are intended to contribute towards the creation of an equal, innovative and sustainable research, publishing and working environment.
