Who We Are

Ubiquity was founded by researchers who saw an opportunity to accelerate change towards Open Access and Open Science in 2012. We believe that the aim of academic publishing should be the widest possible dissemination of research, and are therefore 100% open access. To enhance the reuse potential and impact of research we also strongly support the publishing of all stages of the research lifecycle, such as data, software and preprints.

Along with operating our own highly cost effective press publishing Open Access journals and books, we provide universities with the infrastructure and services they need to run their own presses, as well as with professionally hosted repositories to cover all research outputs.

Our Values

  • Openness

    We are dedicated to open access, open data, open science and open scholarship in general. We are also committed to open infrastructure, actively contributing to the development and maintenance of open source platforms that underpin our core services.

  • Trust

    We work in partnership with researchers, universities and academic societies, and believe that all partnerships depend on trust. We guarantee to remain 100% open access and in support of open infrastructure.

  • Change

    We believe that publishing and research communication need to evolve along with the needs of researchers. We challenge older models that impede the equitable exchange of knowledge, and encourage innovation.

  • Empathy

    We empathise closely with our partners and community, and work hard to enable them to be successful on their terms. We have an open, supportive working environment, and encourage our staff to grow and develop.

We guarantee to remain dedicated to Open Access and Open Infrastructure. This is written into our Customer Charter, which is overseen by our Partner Advisory Board.
