“Scientific progress is fueled by collaboration. By democratizing the world’s scientific research, making it freely available to all, we want to inspire greater opportunity for collaboration, speed of discovery and scientific progress.”


Open Access is in the heart of the Humans in Space program as it removes barriers and allows everyone to freely access the research published. However, open access publishing fees also pose a barrier to many talented authors who just can’t afford to pay.

Humans in Space program aims to remove this barrier and pursue a model under which none of our authors will need to pay for publication and the editors will receive a budget for their editorial work.

We are currently in the process of collecting sponsorship. If you have any ideas or would like to help sponsor the program, we’d love to hear from you.
