Hershey, PA, USA -- July 8, 2022. IGI Global, a medium sized independent academic publisher based in Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA has signed the Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA). The worldwide initiative aims to implement practical and robust approaches to research assessment globally and across all scholarly disciplines.
IGI Global has always been a strong advocate for assessing research on its own merit rather than the merit of the journal in which the research is published.
Additionally, IGI Global does not have caps on the number of words, figures, and references that can be included in articles.
"Signing the DORA initiative aligns neatly with our values," says Melissa Wagner, Vice President of Editorial at IGI Global. "It has always been our priority to measure research based on its own merit and we are always striving to innovate our products to be accessible to all. This initiative has only confirmed to us that our mission of inclusivity and drive to implement new and exciting attributes to our e-books is just what researchers need."
Through their alignment with DORA, IGI Global is leading the academic publishing industry in shaping the new standard approach to research evaluation.
