Scholastica was founded in 2012 in response to a growing need in academia for an easier, more modern way to peer review research articles and publish high-quality open access journals online.
Since then, the size of Scholastica's team and the scope of our software have grown, driven by our mission to empower journal publishers to make quality research available more efficiently and affordably in order to facilitate a sustainable research future.
We believe in the importance of making research available to the broadest audience possible, so we're actively cultivating a platform and a community around open access publishing to help journals do just that.
The Scholastica platform is owned by Scholastica, Inc., which is headquartered in beautiful Chicago and under the direction of the three founders (Brian, Cory, and Rob).
Scholastica is made up of a diverse group of people with a shared goal to improve academic journal publishing. We bring our passion, creativity, and love of problem solving to work every day.
Knowledge is collaborative, intellectually honest, and engages with the real world. Scholastica exists to support the spread of knowledge, so as a company we aim to live by the following five values:
|Be intellectually honest|
|Let the best idea win|
|Don't be an asshole|
We're looking for smart and dynamic colleagues to help us make science and scholarship available more quickly and more affordably to the world.
