About IntechOpen

IntechOpen - where academia and industry create content with global impact

Our Mission

We pride ourselves on our belief that scientific progress is generated by collaboration, that the playing field for scientific research should be leveled globally, and that research conducted in a democratic environment, with the use of innovative technologies, should be made available to anyone.

We are on a journey to democratise knowledge. The Open Access paradigm is the only model which allows that. Content is accessible for free, on all electronic devices - no matter where its downloaded and read, from Burkina Faso, to Romania or in Silicon Valley.
