Corporate Social Responsibility


As an international academic publisher, we are committed to distributing our journals as widely as possible to non-profit organizations in developing countries. Through agreements with international organizations, we make our academic content available at little to no cost.

We are always keen to work with initiatives that create new opportunities for the dissemination of research from developing countries and that bring this material to the global academic community.

INASP: In collaboration with the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications, we have enabled selected countries in Africa and Asia to purchase low-cost access to our De Gruyter Online content for their libraries and research networks.

HINARI: In collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), we are participating in the HINARI program, which provides low-cost or free online access to journals in the biomedical sciences and related social sciences in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East.
