In our efforts to make research communication faster, fairer, and more useful we recognize that the way we carry out our mission in some parts of the world looks different than it does in others. We proudly partner with organizations like Seeding Labs and Author Aid to deliver free or reduced-cost services to under resourced corners of our globe.


While our remote workforce may be spread out across the country, we are headquartered in the heart of Durham, North Carolina. Our team regularly volunteers in the Triangle community at food banks, animal shelters, and in school programs. We also sponsor and participate in charity walks and other events.
