IntechOpen was born as a response to the challenge
experienced by its founders to access academic research
while they were PhD students. Inspired by this need, they
decided to create a new digital platform where researchers
like themselves could find critical information more easily
and for free. The publisher’s first open access journal went
online in 2004, the first open access book was published
in 2005, and thus the IntechOpen publishing platform was
born - built by scientists for scientists.
Now, with over 15 years of experience and more than 4,800
books published specialising in technology, science, and
medicine, IntechOpen has grown to become the world’s
leading publisher of open access books.
