The Society Publishers’ Coalition (SocPC) is a group of likeminded, not-for-profit learned societies and membership charities who publish  as part of their charitable objectives and who re-invest the surplus from their publishing into the disciplinary communities they serve.


SocPC members share the common ambition to see an orderly and sustainable transition to open scholarship and to improve the efficiency of the scholarly communication ecosystem for the benefit of researchers and society at large in a fair and sustainable way. In order to help achieve this we wish to work with researchers, funders, institutions and other stakeholders.
