At MSD Publications, we take pride in being able to connect academics and researchers across continents. Collaborations brought on by our efforts not only pave the way to new and unforeseen studies but also play a vital role in the success of our journals. We highly value research organizations, academic societies and corporate groups that partner with us in bringing about the benefits of Open Access to the global community. We are always on the lookout to form new partnerships. It is our vision to bridge the gap between academia and industry, becoming a central hub for diverse groups to interact is the first step towards achieving it.
Through collaboration, our objective is to bring together scholars with similar interests and create opportunities to engender state-of-the-art research. Mutual Benefits are essential to make a partnership successful and sustainable over the long run. MSD Publications provides partial waivers on article processing charges, conference registration fees, etc. to all participating members of the collaborating association. Papers created and published as a result of partnerships benefit both the journal and the participating partner by promoting the content to a newer and larger group of audience.
We offer a wide range of perks in addition to discounts and waivers such as promoting partnering organization's events, news, and sponsoring annual meetings. We also recommend our partners to authors, editors and reviewers to increase membership. We request the partnering association to dedicate a section on their website to MSD Publications and announce relevant journals as the official publishers for the organization
An agreement needs to be accepted and signed by MSD Publications and the collaborating organization stating mutual benefits, financial agreements, duration and terms of termination of contract. MSD Publications continuously strives to uphold the ethics of scientific publishing while producing quality content, our partners are expected to meet the same standards.
