The Difference Philanthropy Makes

Scientific understanding is more important than ever — and we need your support

support Knowable magazine support Annual Reviews

A functional democracy requires that policy makers, practitioners, educators, students, and citizens follow the science that underlies the issues impacting society. Nonprofit publisher Annual Reviews has a long-term goal of making the knowledge and wisdom of the leading researchers that publish with us available to, and usable by, diverse audiences through four interdependent initiatives. Your tax-deductible gift can support:

  • Publication of Knowable Magazine, an authoritative source of high-quality science journalism for a general audience.
  • The conversion of our journals from gated to open access through the Subscribe to Open pilot program
  • Development of actionable summaries of research tailored to the needs of professionals, policy makers, and educators.
  • Interdisciplinary online events on key current issues, facilitating the flow of information among researchers and other stakeholders.
