Library purchasing

Since the first issue of Philosophical Transactions in 1665, publishing has been at the heart of the Royal Society’s mission. Our leading hybrid and open access journals enable scientists to build communities of interest across subject boundaries. 

We are committed to broad coverage of all science, and specialise in publishing interdisciplinary research and the proceedings of scientific meetings. Top ranked universities from every region in the world purchase to our peer reviewed journals, publish in our open access and hybrid titles, and have acquired perpetual access to our journals archive.
